If a cancellation occurs, ticket holders will be offered the choice to use their ticket for another performance if possible, donate the price of the ticket back to the concert series, or receive a full refund. However, this is a "FAIRWEATHER” event. If the concert needs to stop part way through due to rain, tickets will not be refunded.
