Your Concert Experience

piccolo

Finding your seat.  Unless otherwise stated: tickets provide general admission, our box office opens 45 minutes before each concert, and seating for indoor concerts begins 30 minutes before the downbeat.

Accessibility.  If you have questions about accessible entrances or seating, please contact us.  All our venues are wheelchair accessible.

The music.  You'll find our concerts entertaining and memorable, and Maestro Lipari's discussions of the music will help you appreciate what you're hearing.  Although there is rarely a need to do so, the Symphony retains the right to change a previously announced soloist or musical work.

Clothes, children, and cameras.  Please come as you are, whether you're in jeans or a suit.  Well-behaved children are always welcome, but cameras are not:  copyrights prohibit taking photos or making recordings of any kind not commissioned by the Symphony.

Getting there.  See the links on the Concerts page for maps of our concert locations. Free parking is available at all concerts.  Our venues are conveniently located along, or near, major roads in the western suburbs, with restaurants nearby.

  • Glenbard East High School - 1014 S Main Street, Lombard
    Less than 2 miles east of the intersection of I-355 and Roosevelt Road, and then just north of Roosevelt.  Park in the large lot that's on the back of the school, close to a school entrance; you can also drop passengers off along the semi-circular drive on the front of the school, which takes you into the auditorium lobby.
  • Hinsdale Central High School - 55th & Grant Streets, Hinsdale
    About 1 mile east of Route 83 along 55th Street. Large parking lots are along Grant, south of 55th, across the street from the concert entrance.
  • Lemont Performing Arts Center - 425 Julia Street, Lemont
    Less than 4 miles southeast of the intersection of I-55 and Lemont Road.   For directions to the free parking garage that's next to this state-of-the-art concert hall, click here.  
  • St. Joseph Chapel - 1515 W Ogden Avenue, La Grange Park
    About 1.5 miles east of I-294, along Ogden Avenue, next to Nazareth Academy.  Park along the private roads or in the lots that surround the Chapel and Academy, front and back; also look for parking attendants to assist you.  Concert entrance is off the circular drive in the middle of the complex.  
  • Westmont High School - 909 Oakwood Drive, Westmont
    About 0.5 mile west of Route 83 along Ogden Avenue, and then half a mile north of Ogden. Turn north onto Oakwood at the stoplight at Ogden.  Oakwood winds through a residential area - the high school is on your right as you head north on Oakwood.  Park in the large lot on the south side of the building and enter the large bank of doors next to that parking lot.
