Season subscriptions, as well as individual concert tickets are available for purchase at Heights Arts, 2175 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights, via phone at 216-371-3457, or online. We are pleased to offer reduced-price tickets for students ages 8-23, thanks to generous funding from the Paul M. Angell Foundation. Students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult (who also qualifies for the student ticket price).
Most concert venues are wheelchair accessible. Directions for concerts at private residences are mailed a week in advance. Advance ticket purchase is necessary as seating is limited, and Close Encounters concerts have a tradition of selling out.
