Season 2016-17


The 2016-2017 subscription period has passed. Please check back in early March 2017 for information about subscriptions for the 2017-2018 season. If you have any questions, please call the MSO office at (608) 257-3734.

We're confident that you'll find great value and satisfaction as an MSO subscriber. If, after your first concert, you don't agree, you may return your remaining Symphony tickets for a refund of the unused portion of your subscription. Guaranteed!

Unlimited Ticket Exchange: If a conflict comes up, exchange your tickets for another MSO performance in Season 16-17 at least 24 hours before the concert you'll miss. (A $2 per ticket Overture Center fee applies.)

Missed Concert Insurance: Miss a performance? No problem. We'll provide tickets to another subscription concert during Season 16-17—for free! (One time only.)

Ticket Tax Deduction: Can't use your tickets? Give them back to the MSO at least 24 hours before the concert and receive a tax-deduction receipt for your donation.

Free Tickets: Invite your friends on us! Order all eight concerts and we'll send you a pair of free ticket vouchers. (One pair of vouchers per subscriber household.)

Save 10% on Extra Tickets: Buy single tickets before they go on sale to the general public, and save 10%, during Subscriber Courtesy Days. Subscriber Courtesy Days for Season 16-17 are August 17-19, 2016.

Park Conveniently: Subscribers can enjoy reserved parking at the Dane County/Capitol Square South Ramp, two blocks from Overture Hall, for just $3.50 per concert. Sign up on the order form.

Lost Ticket Replacement: Never worry over misplaced tickets again. Simply contact the MSO or visit the Overture Center Box Office on the day of your concert for reprints.

Personal Attention: It begins right now! Call us at (608) 257-3734 for assistance with your subscription order, or email our Patron Services Manager at info@madisonsymphony.org with any questions you may have. We are open 9-5 weekdays (June-August summer hours are 9-5 Mon-Thurs and 9-Noon Fridays). You can also visit us at our courtesy table in the Overture Hall lobby before all concerts. We want to ensure you have an optimal concert experience!

Subscriber Welcome Kit: This kit arrives in August with your subscription tickets, exchange cards to make exchanges easier, calendar reminder stickers and a wealth of information.

Prelude Discussions: Enjoy a free, 30-minute talk by local conductors, radio hosts, professors and other experts, exploring the music and the lives of the composers. These talks begin one hour before each Symphony subscription performance in Overture Hall except the Christmas Concerts.

Program Notes: Read about the composers and music before the concerts by clicking here after July 1, 2016 or send your email address to info@madisonsymphony.org with the subject line “Program Notes” and we’ll email you the Program Notes the Tuesday before every concert weekend.
