***UPDATE FROM MSO – 9/12/19: Repairs at the Saenger requires that we move our opening weekend concerts to the Civic Center Theater (401 Civic Center Dr.). While crews are busy repairing the Saenger, MSO staff members are working to make sure this temporary move will be easy and effortless for you. If you have already purchased tickets, your tickets will work just fine. We’re keeping it simple and have changed the Civic Center’s numbered rows to letters to match the Saenger. Extra ushers will be on hand to assist you. Ample parking is available behind the theater for $5 — entrance is at 298 Claiborne Street.***
