Upgrade Your Seats
for 50% Off the Difference!
One Time Only: Upgrade your tickets to any new seating category (see our Seating and Price Charts), and we'll send you a rebate for 50% off the difference between your regular seat price for Season 2018–19 and the new price for your upgraded seats for Season 2018–19.

Here's an example: If your regular "B" seats for Season 2018–19 cost $848 for two subscribers, and you upgraded to "A" seats that cost $1128 for two subscribers for Season 2018–19, the difference between them would be $280, and we would send you a check for 50% of that difference, or $140. Check the box on the order form to receive your rebate.
Change Your Plans...Painlessly
Unlimited Ticket Exchange: If a conflict comes up, exchange your tickets for another MSO performance in Season 2018–19 at least 24 hours before the concert you'll miss.

Missed Concert Insurance: Miss a performance? No problem. We'll provide tickets to another subscription concert during Season 18–19—for free! (One time only.)

Ticket Tax Deduction: Can't use your tickets? Give them back to the MSO at least 24 before the concert and receive a tax-deduction receipt for your donation.
Share the Experience for Less
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 the 2018–19 season are August 15–17, 2018.
Enjoy a Worry-Free Experience
Priority Reseating: Would you like to change your seats? As a subscriber, you have priority based on your subscription, contribution and volunteer history with the MSO. See our Priority Seating Procedure for details.
We'll do our best to accommodate you.

Park Conveniently: Subscribers can enjoy reserved parking at the Dane County/Capitol Square South Ramp, two blocks from Overture Hall, for just $4.25 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 renewal order, or email our Patron Services Manager at with any questions you may have. 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 Madison Symphony Christmas concerts.

Program Notes: Read about the composers and music before the concerts by clicking here in August 2018 or send your email address to with the subject line “Program Notes” and we’ll email you the Program Notes the Tuesday before every concert weekend.
