All of our performances venues provide ample parking options for patrons. Please visit our "Directions" page to select your venue with further parking details: www.thecip.org/about-us/directions.
Are the performances handicap accessible?
Yes. Whether you're attending a concert at Erne or Robbins Auditorium, or a Cabaret event at The Commons, there are ramp entrances and elevator access for patrons who require mobility assistance. For special accommodations, call the Box Office at 812-376-2638, x1 prior to the performance.
Which restaurants are recommended for dinner before the show?
We're so lucky to partner with local restaurants to offer discounts to concert patrons this season: Amazing Joe's Grill - Free appetizers with purchase of 2 entrees; Arni's - $10 off $30; Henry Social Club - $35 dinner includes: HSC Salad, Entree, glass of house wine (orig. $50); Tre Bicchieri - 15% off bill
Just show your concert ticket to your server to redeem your deal before the concert! These deals are only valid for patrons attending a concert during the 2017-18 season (cabarets do not apply).
Where do I pick up my tickets?
Tickets purchased over the phone or online can be picked up at Will Call at the Box Office at 315 Franklin Street, Columbus, IN 47201; or you can pick them up the night of the concert before ushered to your seat. We do not issue physical tickets for "Cabaret at The Commons" events. Just check in with your reservation name, and we'll direct you to your assigned table!
Is there an age limit for any of the performances?
The Philharmonic is proud to offer family-friendly programming during the concert season. Check out the "Phil's Family Fun Pass" for a discount program designed for families! Although our cabaret events are open to all ages, please note that we do offer a cash bar at these unscripted performances. The cabaret events can be enjoyed by any mature young person.
How is my seating determined?
If you're attending a Philharmonic concert, you choose your seat at time of purchase. Cabaret seating is assigned by the Philharmonic staff based on order of purchase. Cabaret table reservations can be accommodated upon request.
Can I meet the guest artist after the performance?
If you're attending a Philharmonic concert, the featured guest artist greets patrons in the lobby after the performance for CD sales/signing (check your email for communication about a specific event). If you're attending a cabaret, our VIP patrons are invited to an exclusive Meet-and-Greet with the featured guest artist after the show at The Commons. This option is only available to patrons who purchase a VIP ticket.
