Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I purchase tickets?

Tickets are available online and at the door.

I can no longer attend the concert. Do you offer refunds?

We do not offer refunds for any purchased tickets. If you wish to release the tickets to be re-sold, please contact Janet Stone, 617-536-0944 x212.

When do concert doors open?

Doors generally open 30 minutes before show-time.

What does “GA” mean on my ticket?

GA stands for General Admission. Many concerts are general admission by section, meaning that you purchase a ticket for a section of seating (denoted by color). You may sit where you like within your section.

I have a ticket for a specific seat. How do I know where I am sitting?

Seated tickets are labeled as P#-Letter (Ex. P34-A). The “P#” stands for the pew number. Numbering can be found on the brass plates located on the outside arm of each pew. Lettering runs from the outside in. Therefore, seat P34-A means you are in pew 34, closest to the aisle. Ushers will always be available at concerts for any needed assistance.

I am interested in volunteering to be an usher! How do I go about this?

We would love to have you. Please contact Janet Stone, 617-536-0944 x212.
