Latecomer Seating
As a courtesy to other patrons, latecomers will be seated at the discretion of house management at an appropriate interval in the program. Fire regulations require everyone, regardless of age, to have a ticket in order to enter the auditorium.

Concert Etiquette and Dress
Please respect your fellow concertgoers by not creating distractions such as talking. Cell phones, pagers, electronic watches and any other such devices should be turned off before entering the concert hall. Children are welcome at CU Presents events, but we ask that you carefully consider whether or not your child can enjoy a performance without creating a disturbance for surrounding concertgoers. Regardless of age, infants and children must have their own ticket in order to comply with Boulder fire codes.

Many people ask us what proper dress is for CU Presents. We recommend that you wear whatever you would feel comfortable in for an evening out at a nice restaurant in Boulder.

Many people have scent sensitivities or are highly allergic to perfumes. Because a concert experience places people in an enclosed environment, consider avoiding perfumes, cologne, after-shave and scented lotions.

Light snacks and beverages are for sale at all Artist Series and Eklund Opera events in Macky courtesy of UMC Catering. Food is not for sale at Takács Quartet and Eklund Opera Music Theatre concerts.
