Donation/Exchange Policy

If you’re unable to attend, we can help you donate your ticket or exchange it for a different event within the same season or series. For example, a ticket purchased for the fall 2023 Rising Stars Series could be exchanged for another concert in the same series. Please contact the box office at least 2 hours before the event begins so that we can make arrangements. We do not refund tickets.
