Ten Evenings Season Subscriptions

Subscriptions

Subscriptions for packages of 10 or 6 lectures go on sale each spring and are available until the start of the season, while they last.

Current Subscribers

We love our long-time subscribers. Thank you for your loyalty!

Subscription renewals are mailed to current subscribers on May 1. Watch for the packet in your mailbox and return to Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures. The deadline to renew current seats is June 1. We cannot guarantee these seats for subscription renewals received after June 1.

Requests for changes to subscriber seating are processed in date order—the sooner you return your subscription form, with your seat change request, the better chance you have to improve your seat.

New Subscribers

Welcome new subscribers! Whether you have purchased single tickets to Ten Evenings lectures, attended our other programs, or are new to Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures, we’re thrilled that you’ve found us.

Sign up to receive a brochure in the mail. Brochures to new subscribers will mail on May 15 and orders are filled on a first-come, first served basis beginning June 1.

Single Tickets

Single tickets will be available online beginning July 5.

Sell Outs

Many of our lectures do sell out. Should the lecture you want to attend be sold-out, don’t despair. Tickets often become available throughout the season due to returns, so you may want to re-check the ticketing page.

Additional seats often become available on the day of the lecture due to last-minute returns. These seats are sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the door beginning at 6 p.m. on lecture nights. For updates on night-of availability follow us on Facebook.
