We appreciate the time and effort that it takes for you to share your talents with our patrons. To recognize your dedication to TFO we will offer the following, based on availability, to performers and chaperones.
- Free tickets to the performance following the pre-concert lobby performance
- The opportunity to meet the conductor or soloists during intermission
- A social media shout-out from TFO dependent upon media consent for all participants under the age of 18
- Submit this form at least one month prior to your earliest date choice.
- If possible, the type of performance group or theme should align with the TFO program. For example, piano students can perform before a program featuring a piano concerto, or a group playing Beethoven can perform before a concert featuring a Beethoven symphony.
- All performing groups will need to bring their own music stands, signage, and easels. TFO will provide chairs.
