Choose your own encore

Our popular “choose your own encore” will add some tension to the evenings. The musicians have prepared a list of five possible encores. If you want to hear any of these, you’ll have to bid for the piece you want performed.

How to bid

Bids may be purchased for $5 prior to and during the performance. At the live performance, audience members will have the opportunity to bid during intermission; online audience members can bid throughout the performance, until the end of intermission.
