Know Before You Go

We get this question a lot, but rest assured, there’s no dress code. Create the experience you want to have through your own unique look.

One way to get the most out of your experience is to learn a little bit about the music you’re about to hear. Pick up a program magazine on the way to your seat, and you’ll find a treasure trove of info about the musicians, the music and stories of how it was created.

Share your enthusiasm at the end of each individual piece. If there are multiple movements (sections of the larger work) listed next to a piece in your program, hold your applause until after the last movement on that list. If you’re uncertain, wait for cues from those around you. Our superfans will show you the way.

While we don’t allow videos or photos while the musicians are performing, we highly encourage you to capture your time with the Orchestra before or after the performance or during intermission. Use #MNorch on social media, and we'll like and share our favorites!

If device separation gives you a little anxiety, we get it. Please silence your phone when you enter the auditorium and try not to look at your phone while the musicians perform. The light from your screen can be distracting to your seat neighbors.

Most concerts include a 20-minute intermission. Plenty of time to use the restroom, stretch your legs, pick up a drink, or look through your program to get excited about the second half.

Orchestra hall is within walking distance of some of the city's best restaurants and entertainment hot spots.  See our favorites.
