I know what you’re thinking – Lethbridge has a SYMPHONY?! Before you join us, whether for your very first time or the 1092, there are a few things you may want to know.

Update on proof of vaccination and masking from the Board of the Lethbridge Symphony Association:

As of March 1, 2022, patrons are no longer required to show proof of vaccination at Lethbridge Symphony events.

Until further notice, we ask that patrons of all ages wear a fabric or disposable mask that snugly covers the mouth and nose. Masks must be worn throughout the performance.

The safety and comfort of our patrons, volunteers, musicians, and staff is our first priority. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Vicki Hegedus, Executive Director, at executive@lethbridgesymphony.org or 403.328.6808 x 103.

In the 2021-2022 season, all performances are approximately 90 minutes with no intermission. (Our productions with intermission range from 90 – 120 minutes.)

What about drinks and snacks? I’m thirsty all the time! Understandably, it may be hard to sit through an event without having a drink available. You may bring your water in a resealable container to your seats. If you forget yours, we have some available for a $2 donation in the lobby area. Please bring them to your seats and enjoy the show!

Well sure, but what about the technical stuff? Technically, we just want you to have an amazing experience. Not sure when to clap? If you loved the piece, clap! See a new performer walk on stage? Welcome them with a round of applause.

We ask that you put your phone on silent so as not to interrupt or distract the performer(s) or fellow concert-goers, but take those selfies (preferably not while they are playing)! We love seeing them on our social media. Due to copyright laws, we are unable to allow videos of the performance. Yeah, we wish you could too.

Programs are also available on your phone! Exciting, right? Since we expect that you will be referring to the program during the concert, we ask that you turn down your screen brightness to avoid distracting the performer(s) and fellow concert-goers

The number one question we get asked is, “What do I wear?” To put it bluntly, you do you! Are you feeling casual that day and want to wear your favourite pair of jeans? DO IT. We promise you won’t be the only one. On the other hand, if you’re going on a date, a night out on the town, or really just feel like wearing your glitz, go ahead and do it! Again, you won’t be the only glamorous one that night. All that we ask is that you are comfortable.

Now, what you won’t see much of is ball gowns, coattails and bowties. Most of us save our dress-up days for our annual fundraiser Love Notes, where you can actively promote and give back to the community through our Vibrations education and outreach programs.

You might find that our answer is very subjective. Since Southminster Church is a fairly intimate venue, there are very few “bad” seats in the house. For the best mix of sight and sound, you will want to sit somewhere in the center of the floor, or front and center upstairs. With that in mind and budget is a concern, price tiers decline the further away from those seats, and so will things such as sight lines and audio quality.

There are structural posts within the building which may obstruct views from some seats. The posts located on our map are marked in grey, and all seats behind the posts are priced lower, accordingly.
