Accessibility

Music is an art that relies on two groups of participants: Performers and listeners. In the process, a deeply experienced form of human communication occurs that gives meaning to our existence. The Princeton Symphony Orchestra believes that when more people are listening, more meaning is possible in our lives. Below, view descriptions of the accessible services that we provide:

Lobby to Seat Service

Starting a half hour before performances begin, Richardson Auditorium ushers are available to assist patrons in getting from the lobby to their seats or wheelchair-seat locations. Mobility aids that cannot be stored safely within the patron’s seating area, or wheelchairs for those patrons who transfer to a theater seat, will be stored outside the concert hall as close as possible to the patron’s seat. At intermission, ushers make every effort to check in with patrons who may need assistance getting to restroom entrances or guest artist signing tables. At the conclusion of the performance, ushers are available to assist patrons to the lobby.

Please note that staff, volunteers, and ushers are not able to assist patrons in transferring to or from a wheelchair, theater seat, or vehicle; operate motorized mobility aids such as scooters and Segways; or provide personal attendant services such as assisting patrons in the restroom, with taking medications, or with similar activities. Ushers are not permitted to accompany patrons outside of the building.

If you need extra time to enter the Hall, you may arrive up to one hour before the start of the concert. Upon arrival, ticket holders will be admitted and temporarily accommodated in an accessible area just outside of the auditorium. The auditorium will open 30 minutes prior to the concert, at which time ticket holders will be assisted to their seats.

 

Additional Services

If you need any additional services such as a sign language interpreter, an assistive listening device (for venues other than Richardson Auditorium), or a Braille program – please contact our Manager of Patron Services, Kitanya Khateri at least 2 weeks before the concert date. She can be reached by phone at (609) 497-0020 or email kkhateri@princetonsymphony.org
