- If I have paid for concert tickets and cannot
attend at the last minute may I received a refund?
- Unfortunately there are no refunds. You might
want to use this as an opportunity to introduce
friends to these special concerts.
- Should I purchase tickets prior to the concert?
A - Since the concert venue is small... just 100
seats... it is advisable to arrange for tickets
prior to the concert. However, on concert nights,
there will be some tickets available for purchase
at the door starting at 7:00 pm.
- Where is parking available near the Absolute
A - Street parking is available on E. Grand River
Avenue and Turner Street. Parking is also available
in the lot off of E. Grand River Avenue at the
south end of Turner Street.
- When can I pick up tickets that have been ordered
from Arts Tickets?
A - Tickets will be available for pick up starting
at 7:00 pm at the Absolute Gallery on concert
- If I am unable to locate someone to care for
my preschool and early elementary children the
night of the concert may I bring them along?
A - We ask that you leave young children at home
so that you (and the other patrons) can enjoy
the concert and not feel anxious about disrupting
the musicians and objects in the gallery.
Q - What are concerts
in the soiree tradition?
A - A soiree is technically an evening party for
friends held for a specific purpose, often in
an intimate and informal setting. We think of
the Absolute Music Chamber Concerts as musical
soirees with you, the audience, as our guests
and the Absolute Gallery as the intimate setting.
At our party the rich music will be complemented
by inspiring art on the walls and light refreshments.
- What is chamber music anyway?
A - Chamber music is a form of classical music
performed by a small number of musicians, one
performer to a part, and generally without a conductor.
The word "chamber" signifies that the
music can be performed in a small room, often
in a private salon with an intimate atmosphere.
- What is proper attire for the concerts?
A - Informal dress is appropriate.
