To our Classics Series Concert V patrons:

Our May 13, 2022, performance will take place the evening prior to the Wilmington Grand Prix bicycle race. Preparations for that race will begin Friday and some traditional access to The Grand Opera House will be limited.  Please allow some extra time for your arrival to the performance.

Beginning at 8:00 pm on May 13th, there will be no traffic or parking permitted on North Market Street. Fencing will be constructed during the evening hours; however, Grand Prix officials have arranged for pedestrian crossings to be left open at the corners of 8th, 9th and 10th street for DSO patrons to access the restaurants along North Market Street and the parking garage on Shipley Street. Patrons will be permitted to drive on Market Street, to drop patrons off at The Grand Opera House’s main entrance.  10th Street will also be closed from Orange Street to King Street.

We encourage all patrons to use King Street and the King Street entrance to The Grand Opera House.  The DoubleTree garage will be open and available to accommodate all DSO patrons.

We are working directly with the senior communities that provide shuttle bus services to and from our concert. Those services will be able to drop off and pick up directly in front of the Grand Opera House.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact the DSO office by telephone at (302) 656-7442 or by e-mail at

This information will also be posted on our website ( on the May 13 concert page.

Thank you.
