After a 10-minute waiting period, the house manager will be notified when and if access is available.
Cameras and recording devices
Photos and video are permitted before and after performances, and during intermission. However, recording of performances is strictly prohibited, as it is not only distracting to those around you but a violation of the contracts of the musicians. Anyone caught recording or taking pictures during a concert may have their device confiscated, or even be asked to leave.

The Kleinhans Music Hall bar serves soft drinks, coffee, tea, water, beer, wine and mixed drinks before concerts and during intermission. Some packaged snacks are also available.
