Important: Please enter a valid email when making your purchase.
What do I need to watch the Digital Concert Series?

I am having trouble buying a ticket on the WSO website. What can I do?
Make sure you are using a valid browser window – their ticketing software likes Chome best, but will also work with Safari and Firefox. Their software also works best on a computer.
Make sure you are filling in all the required fields at the payment stage. They’ll need your name, address, and email. Be sure to change the “country” field to “U.S.” so that you can enter in your postal code.
Your ticket order has been processed if you receive a confirmation number at the end of the transaction. If you do not get this, please give us a call and we will be glad to help you.
How good will the recording sound quality be?
The WSO is creating these concerts for you with the maximum production and sound quality! The sound quality you hear will be determined by the quality of your device. Investing in a pair of external speakers (approx. $50) for your computer, or using headphones with your mobile device or tablet will give you a better sound quality experience. But it is not mandatory that you make this investment.
Do I have to watch the concert on the release date?
No. You can watch each concert whenever you like. Concerts will be available to watch from the air date until December 31, 2020. You can also rewind, pause, and replay concerts.
What platform is the WSO using to stream concerts?
The Digital Concert Series will stream on Vimeo. The series is password protected, so you must subscribe to receive your password and access the concerts.
What device can I use to stream and watch the Digital Concert Series?
You can use your desktop computer, laptop, tablet, mobile phone, Smart TV, or Apple TV.
The Vimeo app is also supported by Roku.
Can I watch the stream on my TV?
Yes! The easiest way to connect your computer to your TV is through an HDMI cable.

I am a FCA Subscriber. What will happen to my subscribed seats?
For subscribers with seat preferences, all seats will be held until it’s safe to come to the Hering Auditorium again in the future.
What if I have a credit with FCA from a canceled concert in Spring 2020?
If you have outstanding credit with FCA, you can still use it when we offer tickets again. You can also convert it to a donation. If you would like a refund, please let us know.
I’m having technical issues. Can you help me?

On a very basic level, all you need to do is click the “watch now” button in your email (after you make a purchase), type in your password, and turn up your computer volume. If you need assistance, we can walk you though every step of the way!
