Firearms Policy



Please be advised that it is the policy of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra that all firearms or dangerous weapons of any type (including, but not limited to explosives and knives), concealed or unconcealed, are prohibited on its premises, which include the Hilbert Circle Theatre or Symphony Centre. 

This policy extends to all persons entering company premises (including patrons, business associates, and vendors of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra), with the exception of security personnel authorized by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, and those individuals expressly excepted under state or federal laws pertaining to firearms (e.g., I.C. 35-47-2-2).

As the safety of our patrons, business associates, vendors, and employees is of the utmost importance, any individual found to be carrying a weapon onto the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s property in violation of this policy will be asked to immediately leave the premises. Further, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra reserves the right to conduct lawful searches at any time of all packages, containers, briefcases and purses (and other similar personal belongings), and persons entering its properties, in order to ensure that no prohibited weapons are being brought onto its premises in violation of this policy.  Anyone who fails or refuses to promptly permit a search under this policy will not be allowed on the property, or if already on the property, will be asked to immediately leave the premises.

Failure to comply with a demand to leave the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s premises in accordance with this policy will be considered an act of trespass and may result in the involvement of law enforcement and/or prosecution. 

If you have a question about this policy, or become aware of anyone acting in violation of this policy, please contact security personnel for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra immediately.
