THE NEW SEATING POLICY

In order to give each and every one equal opportunity to our premium and reserved seats, we have instituted a new seating policy. We are offering a complete season package in both the "Premium" (PS9) and Reserved" (RS9) sections prior to the first concert of the season. Upon receipt of payment we will do an immediate seat assignment of the requested seat(s). Please remember: this system is based on a "first come first serve" policy. In the unlikely event that more than one person requested the same seat on the same day, the seat will go to the first paid request. No exceptions! These packages, ( your personal reserved seats for the entire season) will be available for purchase up until the first concert of the season. Subsequently, you will be offered these same seats in the same package format for our next concert season during a pre season-sale period, to be determined next year. You may also order our "Halve Season Packages (Premium - PS4 / Reserved RS4). These packages also include pre-assigned seats for the concerts of your choice and are also based on the first come first serve policy, but have no seat assignment until after the first concert of the season. General admission seating may also be purchased at any time. Student tickets are available for purchase at the door only and need to be accompanied by a valid student ID. No exceptions! In doubt, please call us at: (818) 343-3095  

PAYPAL / NO PAYPAL

You may use the PayPal option at the bottom of each concert. When you click "Add to Cart", it now allows for the use of "Continue Shopping" to order tickets for multiple concerts as well as different seating preferences. When you have finalized your choices, you choose "View Cart" to make one final payment. We hope you will attend many concerts! Bring your friends. When an event sells out, we will, of course, take away the paypal capability to purchase tickets for that specific event only. Please call us. We will have a stand-by list available. The sooner you make your reservation, the better.

OUR CONCERTS

 

We strive to always have our concerts on Sunday afternoon.

This is for many the best time in the weekend for such an event.

In this manner we try to be thoughtful of your other weekend activities,

and still achieve a wonderful turnout.

Please note that there is always a possible exception to the rule.

 

Sundays are for many....,

A time to rest, to reflect and to recharge.

With this in mind, we include a breath-taking buffet at the conclusion of these concerts,

 so that you can still enjoy the artists while not having to worry about "what's for dinner"

 Here is a is a sampling of our delicious foods.

 

Food

 

 

These incredible spreads of wonderful foods are put together by our many volunteers.
