Group Reservations— Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance can I make group reservations?

Reservations can be taken beginning on the day of The Shell’s season schedule announcement. Group reservations can generally be made as soon as a season’s concerts are announced by calling  619.235.0804. Certain popular Shell concerts can have several group reservation requests, so our best advice is to reserve early. 

When is payment due?

Final payment for group reservations is due no later than one month prior to the performance date. Up until that time, changes to the number of seats reserved can be made without penalty, subject to availability. This gives you time to figure out how many people will be joining you for the performance! 

Are there any senior, student, or military discounts when I reserve my group?

There is a general senior (age 60+) $3 discount for most seats at The Shell. Also, anyone with an active U.S. Military ID can receive the same discount. Senior and military discounts apply in the Parkside, Bridgeview and Bayview sections. Senior discounts and military discounts do not apply in the Marina, Coronado Row, Skyline Terrace or Lawn sections. San Diego Symphony does not offer student standby tickets for concerts at The Shell, but we do offer a standard $3 student discount for most seats at The Shell. Student discounts apply in the Parkside, Bridgeview and Bayview sections. Student discounts do not apply in the Marina, Coronado Row, Skyline Terrace or Lawn sections. Eligibility for this discount is at the discretion of the Ticket Office. Discount is not available online.

When will I receive my tickets?
