Orchestra concerts in Shreveport are both young and comfortable as well as formal and stuffy. If you like to dress up, it's a great occasion to look smart. If you want to dress down, no one is going to stop you from enjoying the concert as you like it.

Getting tickets in advance is highly recommended. Phone 318-227-8863. Purchase online at

Concerts begin on time. Arriving late may mean ushers will ask to seat you at the first suitable pause.

Shuttles run from Regions Bank parking garage to the show. Beginning at 6:30 pm, they they zip over about every 10 mins. It's a fun ride and free.

Valet parking is handled by a contracted service; the fee is $10.

Off-site parking can be difficult, even for the experienced. The El Dorado parking lot is not a bad default. Free.

Adult beverages as well as frog juice are on sale in the lobby at intermission.

The first concert of the season is Sat, Sept 22. Like all the SSO concerts it begins at 7:30 pm and is in Riverview Theater.

See you there. And if you don't mind, I'll snap you in the lobby at intermission.
