The green “CONCERT SCHEDULE AND RESERVATIONS” button on this page will take you to a schedule of concerts. There is no need to sign in to view the schedule, but when you click “Add to Cart” to reserve seats, you will be asked to sign in with a user ID and password. If you have bought a concert ticket in the last several years, that info was emailed to you on or around April 26, 2018. If you have misplaced your info, click on “Forgot” and enter the primary email for your household (the one that receives concert directions and/or invoices from Mt Top). That address will then receive an email with your credentials (you may have to check your spam).  You can also call our office between 10 and 5  Monday through Thursday and we will give you your information. If you are a new user (never registered for a lesson, purchased a concert ticket, or recently donated to Mountain Top), you must create an account in order to purchase a concert ticket. You will receive email confirmation of your payment.
