  • Easy and convenient exchanges: if you’re unable to attend a MainStage concert, subscribers may exchange ticket(s) for another concert in the same MainStage season

Will Chamber Music Pittsburgh offer online weblinks this season? How does that work?

YES. Each concert will be recorded live and produced into a beautiful video that will be sent via email one week following the live concert. These videos will be available to view on-demand as many times as you’d like for one week following delivery. Please check the live and online dates for each concert within this brochure. All weblinks are included with each subscription or may be purchased individually on our website for $30 starting August 15.

Can I buy a weblink subscription or a subscription that combines in-person and weblink tickets?

Unfortunately, unlike last season, we will not be offering weblink or mix-and-match subscriptions. All subscription tickets must be all six in-person concerts ONLY. Weblink tickets may be purchased individually at $30 each starting August 15.

How can I buy a subscription? A Single ticket? A Weblink?

Subscriptions may be purchased online, by mailing in a subscription form with a check or credit card payment, or you may call the Pittsburgh Playhouse box office at 412-392-8000. Checks should be made out to Pittsburgh Playhouse.

Single tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Pittsburgh Playhouse box office at 412-392-8000.

Weblinks may be purchased online or by calling Chamber Music Pittsburgh at 412-626-6121. Please do not contact the Pittsburgh Playhouse for weblink tickets. Weblinks are only offered through Chamber Music Pittsburgh directly. Thank you for your understanding!

What are your protocols for COVID-19?

Chamber Music Pittsburgh requires proof of vaccination and will follow CDC guidelines as they evolve. Please check our website for updated information throughout the season, and thank you for helping to keep our artists, staff, and patrons safe!
