Concert Policies

and Garden Etiquette

Seating – General admission for all concerts (first come, first served).  

Outdoor Concerts – Feel free to bring a blanket or lawn chairs. We ask that concert goers with high back lawn chairs remain in the rear to allow the best possible view for all.   

Indoor Concerts – Chairs are set up for indoor concerts, however in nicer weather some visitors prefer to bring their own chairs to sit on the patios while enjoying the music through the open doors of the conservatories.

Alcohol - A cash bar is available at Tower Hill concerts for visitors age 21 and over with proper ID. No outside alcohol is allowed to be brought onto the premises for any  event or occasion.

Photos - For most shows, video cameras and audio recording devices are not allowed. Still photo cameras are generally acceptable without a flash; however it is at the discretion of the artist's management.

Tickets are handled via a “registration list”, rather than physical tickets. You will be checked in upon your arrival by the name you registered under. Please bring your printed confirmation reply as backup.

ALL TICKET SALES ARE FINAL, no refunds or exchanges. This is standard policy for most concert venues. In the rare case when a show has been cancelled and not rescheduled; a refund will be given.

Seele Musicale Chanber Ensemble's roots were formed 5 years ago at First Unitarian Church of Worcester when Jagan Nath and Alesia Tringale performed together during worship services. Their musical spirits and desires were wholly synergistic. Two years ago, they gave themselves the name Seele Musicale (the German for "souls in music" and did benefit concerts with music of Bach and Vivaldi.  Adding other kindred souls into the group, they launched themselves in a big way, doing two major sacred works -- Bach's Psalm 51 and the Stabat Mater of Pergolesi, in Boston and Cambridge. They have since played many occasions at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, various churches, public libraries, private home settings, and senior communities. Individually, the Seele Musicale musicians are teachers, music directors, orchestra members, church soloists.  Their common bond is the intense love of the music they choose. Much of their interest gravitates around music of the 17th and 18th centuries until now, and we are currently making friends with living composers near and far. Each new opportunity feels fresh and novel to us.  We trust our enthusiasm and repertoire will continue to grow and flourish.
