To ensure that each patron has the best concert experience possible, please take a moment to read the following information.

Seating Policy:
Please plan to arrive on time.  If you do arrive after the performance has begun, ushers will wait to seat you until a break in the program.  Seat numbers are on the left chair arm.

“Concert Cues”:
Each season concert is preceded at 6:45 p.m. by a brief interactive discussion led by Marvin Granger, formerly of Yellowstone Public Radio. Please sit near the front of the main-floor area for an insightful conversation related to the evening’s music, composers and guest artists. Patrons must return to their reserved seats after the session.

Cell Phones, Beepers and Other Electronic Devices:
Please turn off all electronic devices that are not medically necessary. This includes but is not limited to cell phones, beepers, Blackberries, etc. If you wear a hearing device, please turn down the volume so that it doesn’t squeal during the performance.

Cameras and Videotaping:
No cameras, video or audio recording devices are allowed in the Alberta Bair Theater.

Sound Too Loud?:
Depending on where you are sitting, you may feel that the volume is too loud. We offer complimentary soft foam earplugs for your comfort. Please ask the ushers for a pair.

Sound Not Loud Enough?:
To assist those who can’t hear the performance well enough, the ABT offers complimentary infrared listening devices. Please exchange your driver’s license or ID for a set at the Coat Check counter.

Large Print Concert Notes and Concert Specific Rosters:
At each performance the Symphony provides large print concert notes and concert-specific orchestra rosters. Please inquire at Coat Check.


Men’s and women’s restrooms are located on the mezzanine level. Handicapped access restrooms are located on the north side of the main lobby. Please keep handicapped restrooms on the main floor free for those who are unable to climb stairs.

The Alberta Bair Theater is smoke free.  Smoking is not permitted in the building.

Billings Symphony season series concerts have a 20-minute intermission, unless otherwise noted.

Candy, nuts, soft drinks, juices, wine and beer are available for purchase in both the main lobby and mezzanine before the performance and during intermission. Please be courteous of those sitting around you should you bring food or drink into the auditorium.
