2018 Concerts

The Gateway Festival Orchestra performs 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

Drive into the driveway next to Goldfarb Hall, turn right past Brown Hall and go into the drop off and turn around area near South Brookings Hall. There will be a security guard at the entrance to guide you to the elevator. Take elevator to 1st floor to enter the Quadrangle for the concert. Brookings is a drop off area only (no parking). There are handicapped spaces (placard required) near the entrance to the drive next to Goldfarb. And some other spaces near by that are OK for parking without placard. Signs on the parking spaces will indicate if parking is forbidden, even on Sunday nights, such as Red Permit spaces.

Restroom Access

Bathrooms can be accessed in Ridgley Hall through the entrance behind our concession stand.
