  • Groups may choose to pay the full balance at the time of purchase or a non-refundable 10% deposit in order to secure space at your preferred concert. Best-available seating is then assigned to groups in order of receipt of full payment; once the full balance is received (deadline of three weeks in advance of the performance), your group will be assigned seating.
  • The maximum number of tickets available for purchase online for Symphonic Encounters events is 400. If you would like to purchase more than 400 tickets, please place an order online, and then contact education@vancouversymphony.ca to add more tickets to your order. In your message, please specify the TOTAL number of adult and student tickets required. This will ensure your whole group will be seated together.
