Carmel Bach Festival concerts are appropriate for adults and older children, as silence is required throughout the performance. Most concerts are not recommended for children younger than age 12 as some children find it difficult to sit still for the length of a full performance. We do, however, allow children younger than 12 with a purchased ticket. The Sunset Lobby video monitors are always an option for restless children. Audiences of all ages are welcome at our annual Family Concert!

Discounts are available for retired and active military members (must have ID), students with valid ID and for children between the ages of 6-17. Call the box office for more information.

Groups of eight or more receive a 20% DISCOUNT for Sunset Center and Mission Main concerts in section II and III. We offer custom Festival packages to create a memorable and beneficial group experience. Group sales offer many benefits to Alumni Organizations, Youth Groups, Conference Groups, Service Organizations, Corporate Outings, Travel Clubs, Senior Centers, Family, and Friends.
