This page gives a quick overview of who we are and what we do, as well as answering some of your frequently asked questions about symphonic music and the experience of going to a concert.

Who we are:
The Fort Collins Symphony is the oldest performing arts organization in Larimer County. Our roots were planted in 1923, and we have been performing excellent and diverse classical music for Northern Colorado audiences ever since.
Our education programs reach thousands of students each season, and our annual July 4th performance in City Park has become a staple of the city’s celebration.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
What should I wear to a concert?
Our philosophy is “come as you are!” There is no dress code for our concerts, and formal wear is certainly not required. Many patrons feel comfortable in casual, business casual, or evening wear.
I’m new to symphonic music. Where can I learn more about it?
If you want to learn more about the music on one of our concerts, then the best place to start is the individual concert page. These usually include a Spotify playlist, some interesting facts about the music, and links to where you can learn more.
You can learn more about symphonic/classical music in general on our blog and podcast, or by exploring our archive of program notes. Following our Facebook or Instagram pages is also a good way to find bite-sized content about the music we play.
Where is the best place to sit for a concert?
The best seat for you depends on what you want to get out of the concert! We suggest taking a look at this blog post by Jeremy D. Cuebas, our Assistant Conductor, which covers the four things to consider when picking your perfect seat for a symphony concert.
How much do tickets cost?
Tickets for our Signature Concerts range from $25-$67, depending on where you sit. Tickets for our Pops concerts are $32, and student and child tickets are available for most of our concerts for $10. Tickets can be purchased through the Lincoln Center Box Office and a small box fee will apply to all purchases.
Do you live-stream your concerts?
Yes! Each of our Signature Concerts is live-streamed. This can be purchased via the Lincoln Center Box Office on the same page as each signature concert. Be sure to tune in an hour before the concert to enjoy Maestro’s pre-concert talk.
How can I keep up with the FCS? Do you have social media or a Newsletter?
I’ve heard about subscribers. What is a subscriber, and what are the benefits?
Most orchestras will offer a “subscription package” that includes tickets to many or all of their concerts. This usually comes with benefits like discounts and reserved seats.
FCS Season Subscribers get discounts on their season tickets and the same discount when purchasing additional tickets for friends or family. They also receive free ticket vouchers, reserved seats, and invitations to free summer garden concerts. You can learn more about subscriber benefits on our benefits page.
