Any gift above $100 made to the Annual Fund will now be considered a Circles Membership gift.
Your gift of $100 or more makes you a Circles Member and provides you with benefits and invitations to special events. Benefits provide you with tangible goods and services; per tax regulations, there is a portion of your Circles membership gift that is not fully tax-deductible. However, you may decline tangible benefits and receive a full tax deduction. You will still receive non-tangible benefits, such as ticket priority. Circles member gifts are renewable on an annual basis.
What benefits come by being a Circles Member?
Benefits include dress rehearsal passes, reception tickets, and opportunities to meet guest artists. A list of full benefits can be found here.
What does a Circles Membership support?
Gifts towards Circles membership (previously BCC’s Annual Fund) support scholarship funds, programming, concerts, tours, guest artists, commissions, and more.
How long does my Circles Membership last?
Your Membership is valid for one year from the last day of the month in which you make your gift. For example, if you join as a BCC Member on February 4, 2020, your Membership will extend through February 28, 2021.
What does it mean to decline benefits when I make my gift?
Certain Circles member benefits, such as events and receptions, have a slight cost to BCC associated with them. In accordance to IRS regulations, the value of these benefits must be deducted from the amount you can claim when filing taxes. You can decline benefits, allowing you to claim the full value of your gift for tax purposes. Members who decline benefits are still eligible to receive benefits without a value of goods and services, including ticket priority.
What is a Subscription?
A BCC Subscription provides one ticket to each of our four Classics Series Concerts. These concerts include our Winter Concert, annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Tribute Concert, annual PD Concert, and Season Finale Concert, Lift Every Voice. Subscriptions can be purchased before individual tickets for these concerts go on sale! With a subscription, you will guarantee the very best seat to the most popular concerts of the season.

Subscribers receive an average of 10 % off standard ticket prices
VIP concierge ticketing service
Free, no-hassle ticket exchanges and all season long
Early access to tickets before the general public
Why are there 3 Different Subscription Options?
BCC concert tickets are usually tiered in three price levels. With three different subscription levels, you can choose the best tickets at the price tier that works best for you.
The three tiers of subscriptions represent three levels of tickets. With a Premium subscription, you will be securing premium seats in the hall before individual tickets go on sale. With a Signature subscription, you will be securing signature seats in the hall before individual tickets go on sale. With a Classic subscription, you will be securing classic seats in the hall before individual tickets go on sale.
Can I Purchase additional Individual Tickets?
Subscribers can order additional individual tickets at a 10% discounted subscription rate all year long, even after single tickets go on sale to the general public (as long as tickets are still available).
If tickets are available next to your subscription tickets, we will seat you together. However, this is not usually the case because subscription seats are in high-demand locations.
Donate Your Tickets
When you cannot use your tickets, please consider giving them to a friend or donating them back to BCC so another music lover can attend.

Visit our website here to purchase your subscription.
How will I receive my tickets?
Your tickets will be available at will call the day of the concert or can be emailed directly to you.
Can I exchange a ticket to a Classics Series concert for another season concert?
No, subscription tickets are only valid for BCC’s 4 major concerts, the Classics Series. Tickets for additional concerts in the BCC season can be purchased through the individual box office websites.
***Due to the uncertainty of the future regarding social distancing and the ability to gather in concert venues, BCC is prepared to refund partial or full subscription amounts for concerts that have been canceled due to restrictions on social gatherings.
Because ticketing is a main source of revenue, we would ask that you consider donating your subscription amount if a concert is indeed canceled. If you would like to donate the cost rather than be issued a refund, please contact Elena Efthimiou at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We understand that these times are tough for us all, and we thank you for your continued support and patronage. We look forward to sharing this bold season with you!
