Special Needs Provided ForWe are pleased to serve our patrons with special needs. Please call the PAC Ticket Office at 937.328.3874 to detail your needs and to reserve special seating for wheelchair patrons, listening enhancement devices or an interpreter for signed performances (at least five days notice is required). Parking spaces for those with disabilities are available in a lot immediately adjacent to the Performing Arts Center; a passenger loading and unloading area is located on Fountain Avenue to the west of the Center.


Springfield YMCAThe Springfield Symphony and the Springfield YMCA have joined forces to solve the forever question issue of “What should I do with the kids when I want to go to the Symphony?” For a nominal fee – less than what you would pay an individual babysitter – the Springfield YMCA will provide childcare at their facilities (across from the Performing Arts Center) for each MasterWorks and NightLights concert. Services are available from 7:30 PM to immediately after the concert (approximately 10:30pm). Cost will be $12 for the first child, $10 for each additional child from the same family.

Drop your kids off at the YMCA and sit back and relax to enjoy the wonderful sounds of the Springfield Symphony, while your children play and have fun with some musical activities. The Springfield YMCA offers safe, supervised activities for children and grandchildren of Symphony-goers. Reservations should be made by calling the SSO office at 325-8100 by 5 PM the Thursday before each concert.


Convenient, free parking is available in the lots adjacent to the Clark State Performing Arts Center, between the “Y” and the Brinkman Educational Center; and at the corner of Jefferson and Fountain (south of the Library). Please do not park in the Clark County Library lot.
