The MCO is encouraging audiences to "Live the Music" in their upcoming season. 

Featuring "local heroes, returning faves, and bold innovators," the eight concerts should challenge, delight, engage, and entertain audiences and the music-loving community. 



The organization has also pivoted to a new ticketing system, Showpass, promising a smoother online delivery.

8- and/or 6-ticket packages available with both seat section selection and rush seating offered.
