MSO Staff are available for in-person transactions only
beginning one to one-and-a-half hours prior to each concert.
Due to fire code regulations, all patrons, including infants, are required to have a valid ticket when entering The Maryland Theatre. All tickets, including e-Tickets will be validated using the barcode appearing on the ticket. If the barcode on your ticket becomes damaged, please contact the box office for replacement tickets, if necessary.
All Maryland Orchestra tickets are subject to a $5 per ticket fee. These fees will be disclosed to you over the phone or, if applicable, automatically added to your online shopping cart during checkout. Per ticket fees are charged for both phone and online orders.
For subscribers, per ticket fees are waived during the initial order for season ticket subscriptions. Instead, a flat $15 processing fee is assessed on this initial order. Subscribers who add-on tickets at a later date will still receive their subscriber discount on the base price of the ticket, but will be subject to the standard $5 per ticket fee.
Regardless of age, each person must have a ticket and be able to sit attentively in a seat throughout the performance due to local fire ordinances. Classical concerts are not recommended for children under the age of five years.
All MSO subscription and single ticket sales are final and non-refundable, unless a concert is cancelled. In addition, all processing fees are non-refundable; this includes cancelled concerts.
