Release of Seats
If you are unable to attend a concert for which you have tickets, please call or email the TEF office to release your seats and enable people on our waiting list to purchase tickets for sold-out performances. TEF mails acknowledgements to ticket holders who release their seats at least 48 hours in advance.
Drinks & Bites
Join us for something new! Due to the Center’s reorganization of gallery space, TEF’s traditional pre-concert buffets cannot take place this season. Instead, we introduce Drinks & Bites, a moveable feast of delicious savory and sweet hors d’oeuvres, wine, mixed drinks and coffee served before concerts in the Thomasville Center for the Arts. Mingle with friends and view the Center’s art exhibits as you enjoy an ample selection of hearty and satisfying appetizers, sliders and desserts. Offered exclusively to season subscribers, your invitation will arrive in plenty of time to make reservations for these flavorful occasions.
