There is accessible, free parking around the Hemmens Cultural Center and valet service available.  Area musicians often perform in the lobby before concerts and patrons can purchase gifts at the Elgin Symphony League Boutique.  Pre-concert chats are given by Music Director Andrew Grams, guest artists and others one hour before Classics Series performances, and Saturday night patrons are invited after concerts to Mingle with the Musicians at area restaurants. In addition, free Listeners Club lecture/discussions presented by music historian Jim Kendros are offered before ESO Classics Series concert weekends on Wednesdays at 10 am at GreenFields of Geneva and 1 pm at the Gail Borden Public Library.
