“I wanted to thank SOPAC for the complimentary member tickets last night. I was not familiar with the artist and loved the opportunity to be introduced to a performer I had not seen before. The concert was great – both the opener and the headliner.  I am now a fan after seeing her performance.

As I’ve said before, SOPAC is the best venue around!

Thanks again for the chance to see such an interesting performer in such a beautiful space.”

-M. Montalbetti, member

Invitations are delivered by e-mail to all members. Any members with dietary restrictions may mention this with their RSVP. We can accommodate most dietary requirements with advanced notice.

At times, SOPAC will allow members to bring non-member guests. Space is limited and often fills quickly, so it is recommended to RSVP as soon as possible.

All members receive acknowledgement in our seasonal playbill. Playbills are distributed prior to most performances. Members may update how they prefer their name(s) to be printed at the time of donation or renewal.

Throughout the season, Advocate-level memberships ($75) or higher receive offers for two complimentary tickets to a specific performance. These offers are delivered by e-mail and are distributed first-come, first-served, depending on seating availability.

When a complimentary ticket offer is claimed, the redeeming member(s) will be removed from the complimentary ticket offers e-mail list.  Each household membership is eligible to receive two SOPAC-selected complimentary tickets per season.

Advocate-, Family-, and Champion-level members receive a $5.00 discount per ticket throughout the season. Benefactor-, Impresario-, and Producer-level members receive a $10.00 discount per ticket.

Member discounts are available via the online member portal or the Box Office. This discount applies only to SOPAC-presented events and may exclude specific performances presented by third parties. Member discounts cannot be combined with other offers.

Each household membership will receive a form for their inscription, which may have a maximum of three lines of 20 characters each.

Impresario-level members ($2,500) or higher may receive exclusive experiences with artists as available.
