A Great Value
Our six-concert series is surprisingly affordable. At $125 a season ($105 for seniors), our subscribers pay less than $21 per performance. In fact, the cost of a year’s worth of Civic Music performances is often less than a ticket for a single concert in a large city.
A Great Venue
The Corning Museum of Glass Auditorium (CMoG) is a world-class performance space. Situated at the western end of the museum, the auditorium was the centerpiece of a $65 million expansion and renovation project completed in 2001. It features tiered seating for 750, a full sized stage, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems that are specially configured to create an intimate venue. The facility is further distinguished by its conveniences. Event parking is free and adjacent to the museum. The entrance and walkway is well lit to add atmosphere to a hassle-free concert experience.
Today’s Top Talent and the Stars of Tomorrow
At Civic Music concerts you’ll experience the top talent of today and the rising stars of tomorrow.
