More than just hearing your favourite tunes on stage, there are ticket options available to make seeing live music attainable for all ages and a variety of income levels. Orchestra seating starts at just $30, while Under30 tickets are just $15!

We can’t wait to don some of our most elegant Oscar-worthy outfits (we’re breaking out the fancy cardigans) and settle in for a night of music, movies, and glamour!
