Yes. It is recommended that multiple-seat subscriptions are divided into individual records. Only identified subscribers reap subscriber benefits. Otherwise, transactions regarding subscriptions (important mailings, requests for seating changes, reprints, etc.) can only be carried out by the existing subscriber on record.
Simply include a note with your renewal, providing full names, addresses and phone numbers for each subscriber, and indicate which seats should be allocated to whom. Remember to include all payments.
It is not our policy to allow “willing” of subscriptions to friends. As the existing subscriber, you would release your subscription in writing on the renewal invoice. Your friend may send in a new order form with a request for the seats you held. If the seat(s) are not reassigned to an existing subscriber in need of a change, then we will satisfy the request.
What is your exchange policy?
Exchanges are available for all patrons. A $5 per ticket fee applies to non-subscription tickets (additional upgrade charges may apply). Subscribers may exchange their subscription tickets for free.
Exchanges should be made in person at the Box Office during regular business hours, OR you may mail in your tickets with instructions for the new date, and payment for any fees/upgrades. Exchanges must be made at least 24 hours prior to the concert you wish to switch. We exchange on a ticket-for-ticket basis, regardless of original ticket value.
There are no exchanges at concerts.
Refunds are not provided.
If you cannot attend or exchange, contact the Box Office prior to the concert to donate your tickets for resale. We will issue a donation acknowledgement for the value of the tickets when we physically receive them.
Reprints are free. If you have misplaced your tickets, contact the Box Office, or come to your concert and request reprints. We will be happy to assist you.
Special Seating Needs.
We do our very best to provide adequate seating for all of our patrons. If you need aisle, wheelchair or walker accessible seating, or have any other special needs, please contact the Box Office directly. We will be happy to help.
We accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. We also accept check and cash payments in person. Checks may be made out to Sarasota Orchestra or for Festival events, Sarasota Music Festival.
