Student Tickets

The Maryland Symphony Orchestra is proud to provide free classical music concert tickets to elementary, middle and high school students as part of its Free Student Ticket Program. Public, private and home-schooled students from throughout the quad-state region are eligible to participate during the season.

Music education has been a core mission of the MSO from the very beginning and the orchestra has no stronger advocate for building upon and strengthening that mission than its Music Director Elizabeth Schulze. "It is essential that all of our young people have access to the very best in our culture. This is an opportunity to open doors not only to new ideas and sound worlds, but more importantly, to future educated and enlighten citizenry," states Schulze.

Free tickets for students in K-12, children under 5, and $5 college student tickets can be ordered online, by phone, or in person. If ordering online, simply choose your seats on the map, then select the appropriate price type for each ticket in the dropdown menu on the right.

Questions can be directed to the Maryland Symphony Orchestra Box Office at 301-797-4000.
