2017 Concerts

The Gateway Festival Orchestra performs five free concerts in July. Feel free to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Picnics are welcome, and Ted Drewes and bottled water will be available for purchase.

We suggest you join us at 7p.m. prior to each concert for our pre-concert series, Notes to Munch On, to meet the artists and to take a glimpse inside the music.

Handicap Access

Handicap access to Brookings Quadrangle is available at the south entrance of Brookings Hall. Enter the campus on Hoyt Avenue and turn onto the north end of Brookings Drive, a narrow street marked by barrels, a one-way sign, and a handicap sign. Turn onto that street and go across the front of the building to the “Dropoff” sign. There is a paved incline leading upward to the lower level of Brookings Hall, where the elevators are. There is no parking there. A security guard will be on duty to assist.

Restroom Access

Holmes Lounge will be closed. Access to restrooms will be behind the stage area in Cupples I Hall.
