Please Note: At this time, all venues are planning to seat at 100% capacity.
This Season, print-at-home/mobile tickets will be utilized for Classics, Pops (except for Home for the Holidays), and Focus Concerts. Tickets will be sent to the email address associated with your account/purchase.
Tickets will come from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Your Print at Home Ticket(s) from Orlando Philharmonic”. Attached to the email is a PDF file containing your ticket(s). These PDFs have barcodes, which you will need to present at the venue doors on concert day.
You have two options for bringing these tickets to the concert: you may print them at home or show them on your mobile device when arriving at the venue. If you need assistance on the day of the concert, our Box Office will be on-site to assist you. Please email email@example.com or call 407.770.0071 if you are unable to find your print-at-home tickets in your inbox 24 hours before the performance.
For Symphony Storytime performances: Due to these performances being General Admission, patrons will not be receiving physical or print-at-home tickets. Instead, ticket holders will be checked in upon arrival based on a master list of all performance ticket holders.
