Know Before You Go
Join us for our first Masterworks: From Darkness to Light at the Abilene Convention Center! This concert is brought to you by Masterworks Series Sponsor, Stifel Investment Services and Concert Sponsor, Condley and Company.
There are several items that we’d like you to know in advance of our 2023-24 season opening performance:
The main parking lot at the convention center is located on the North side of the building and is free to park. Handicapped parking is limited so we recommend getting there early.
There are four entrances to the theater, two on the north side and two on the south side of the Convention Center. Each will have a Belle or Beau scanning tickets as you enter
If you have pre-purchased tickets, you may pick up your tickets at the Box Office located in the foyer of the Convention Center. The Box Office will open at 5:30 PM for the 7:30 PM performance.
When purchasing tickets online and selecting the eticket delivery method you will receive one email. This email will contain the order confirmation and the PDFs will be attached at the bottom of the email. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam folder. You can also CLICK HERE and scroll down just after the seating chart and click “Click here to resend tickets” to input the email you used to initially place the order. You can also add your tickets to your Apple Wallet!
Please contact our Box Office with any questions or if you need assistance with your e-tickets.
Walk up tickets will be available for purchase in the foyer. Please note that the Box Office will close at 8:00pm.
The performance will last approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes with a 20 minute intermission. Please try to arrive at least thirty minutes before the concert start time of 7:30 PM.
This leaves time for parking, picking up tickets, getting your ticket scanned, visiting the restroom and finding your seat. If you arrive late you will be seated as soon as there is an appropriate pause in the performance.
There will be a drinks made available for purchase by KAO Lounge in the lobby from 6:30pm to 7:30pm as well as during intermission. They will have water and other nonalcoholic drinks as well.
There are as many ways of dressing as there are people who come to concerts. Most aim for business casual or dressier, but ultimately the symphony is for everyone, wear what makes you comfortable.

However, no children under the age of 6 will be allowed in the concert hall. No children on laps; everyone must have a seat.
