Additional Special Ticket Opportunities
All-Access Community Pass
New this year, we are proud to offer all Lone Star, WIC, SNAP, and EBT card holders an All-Access Community Pass, with which you can attend any Classical Series or Bank of America POPS Series concert for free.
How does it work?
- Request your Community Pass through this form, noting the first concert you’d like to attend. Within 72 hours, you’ll receive communication from our Box Office staff regarding your Pass.
- On concert night, we’ll have your Community Pass ready and waiting at the Will Call window of our Box Office, just outside the main entrance to Jones Hall. Show your photo ID to pick up your pass and your free tickets for that evening’s performance.
- Once you’ve picked up your 2023–24 Season Pass, it remains valid through June 9, 2024. Simply present the Pass at our Box Office at any Classical Series or Bank of America POPS Series concert, starting one and a half hours prior to the concert start time.
One Community Pass is valid for up to five complimentary tickets per performance. If you have a group larger than 6, please contact our Patron Services Center at least 24 hours in advance of the performance. Seating is at the discretion of the Box Office and subject to availability.
