ESO Member Testimonials

“The ESO Membership offers great flexibility at an affordable price, and I enjoy hearing music from a variety of genres and time periods.”

“The monthly membership fee motivates us to go at least once a month. The $10 ticket price motivated us to go to more concerts per month than in the past.”

“I enjoy attending several performances and experiencing new series I wouldn't otherwise look at - the cheap ticket price lets me take a risk and be pleasantly surprised.”

You will be charged a $5 administrative fee for those months without ESO concerts instead of the regular Membership fee.

If you choose a one-time payment:If you pay for your entire Membership from October through to June (9 months), you’ll receive a 10% discount. Members who choose to pay for their Membership in full at the time of purchase will have one (1) month deducted from their total, and then 10% will be deducted. You can pay in full online with a credit card, or in person at the Winspear Centre Box office with cash, debit, or credit.

After you have had a Membership for a minimum of two (2) months, you can cancel your Membership any time up to three business days before your next payment is due, in order to give us time to process your cancellation. However, if you have any tickets booked for upcoming concerts, you will need to pay the difference between your Membership price and the regular ticket price within 72 hours of cancelling your Membership. If you don’t pay to upgrade your tickets, your seats will be released, and the cost of the Membership tickets will be refunded to your original method of payment.

You may either renew your Membership for the month that you have purchased concerts in, or you may pay the difference between the Membership price and the single ticket price.

For example: if you cancelled your Membership in December but had already purchased tickets for concerts in January, you would have to pay the difference in price for those January concerts. You would not be charged an additional amount retroactively for any concerts that you attended prior to December.
