Few ensembles have the worldwide reputation of the Shanghai Quartet, known for its “utterly sublime” performances (New York Times). They regularly perform in major halls across the world, drawing large crowds of devoted fans. Their performances of repertoire ranging from the complete Beethoven quartets to contemporary Chinese works are marked by “an unwavering unanimity of expressive intent” (Washington Post).

Reserve Seats

Most of our 300 seats are for those who just show up - but as a courtesy to our friends who work late, we've set aside 100 advance reservations for general admission. All other seats are 'first come, first served' and are available as early as 6:45 pm, when the doors open. Note that reservations are good for entrance only, not for specific seats. Reservations are void after 7:20pm.

If reservations are gone, don't worry — just show up! It is rare for Music Mondays to turn anyone away.

PATRONS and SUSTAINERS who have given $500 or more in the last year, and LEADERS and SPONSORS who have given $1500 or more in the last year may reserve two or four reserved seats respectively, in advance of the performances. Email to reserve seats. To donate, click here.
