Late Seating Policy

Venice Symphony Orchestra concerts begin promptly at the announced starting time. We recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to the concert start time in order to park and find your seat before the concert begins.

If you are unexpectedly delayed, in deference to our artists and the comfort and listening pleasure of the audience in the hall, late seating will take place during the first appropriate pause in the program, at the discretion of management. Reserved seats are not guaranteed after the performance starts.  Latecomers may be seated in the back out of courtesy to the musicians and other patrons. Certain programs are performed without intermission or without a late seating break before intermission; therefore, no late seating can be offered at those concerts.  Patrons who leave the hall before or during a work will not be reseated until after the completion of the work.  In fairness to the performers and fellow concertgoers, we ask that you remain in your seat until the concert has concluded.
