As a courtesy to Valley Symphony Orchestra musicians and patrons, those who arrive late to a VSO performance will be redirected to the Mezzanine and/or Grand Terrace section of the theatre. Late patrons will be invited to sit in unoccupied seats at the rear of those sections, so that they may still listen to the performance without making interruptions. Patrons may relocate to their ticketed seats at intermission.
