Unspoken Rules: ISO Lunch Series

A manner-festo for the $5 summer symphony concerts.

If you’ve ever been curious about the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Fifth Third Bank Lunch Break Series, here’s all you need to know. =

  • Really, bring lunch. The music drowns out the sound of 1,600 people chewing.
  • Think about your wrapper choices, though. A bag of chips makes a lot of noise.
  • Bring a drink, too—one with a tight lid. There’s a scramble for general-admission seats, and you don’t want to be stuck in the beverage line.
  • If you pack tuna fish, feel free to sit in a row by yourself.
  • Some themes attract a lot of kids, many experiencing the symphony for the first time. Let them have the good seats up front.
  • Even the first chair is likely to be wearing jeans, so there’s no such thing as underdressed.
  • Clean up after yourself. This isn’t Victory Field.
