Young People's Concerts^[[®]] are always completely sold out, yet there are often empty seats in the hall because some ticket-holders can't come at the last minute.  If a schedule change prevents your family from attending, please alert us by calling 875-5656.  That way, we can fill your empty seats - and that's going to put smiles on the faces of disappointed music-lovers who weren't lucky enough to get tickets in the first place.
