Ticketing Information

Options if you have tickets to a canceled or postponed event:

  • Donate the value of your unused ticket(s) to the Symphony. As a nonprofit arts organization, the Seattle Symphony relies on the people we serve. This has never been more true than at this moment. To donate your tickets visit our ticket donation form.
  • Your support today is more important than ever. The cancellation of concerts has a significant impact on the Symphony’s financial health. Ticket sales provide half the revenue needed to share the music you love, and each canceled concert represents an unrecoverable loss, deeply affecting the organization and our hundreds of musicians, staff and volunteers. During this time of event closures as our community works together to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), please consider the role music plays in your life and support your Symphony with a gift of any amount today.
  • Exchange your tickets to an upcoming performance. We are happy to exchange your tickets for one of the many upcoming Seattle Symphony performances, based on availability. All seating-upgrade and exchange fees will be waived.
  • Put tickets “on account.” Unsure what you’d like to exchange into? Put your funds on account for future use. tickets@seattlesymphony.org.
