MOB Tech Help

All eight concerts in Music of the Baroque's 2023-24 season will be available On Demand for 30 days beginning the Friday following the performance run.

On this page you will find tips and tricks for how to watch our concerts online. If you need additional help, please email Audience Services Manager Chloe Tarnowski or call the MOB box office at 312.551.1414.

What is the difference between livestream and On Demand?

A livestream is an event that takes place at a specific date and time. Just like an in-person concert, you are viewing musicians performing live at the listed date and time.

On Demand events give you access to a pre-recorded concert during a specific window of time. If you purchase a concert on demand, the window of time you have to view the event will be listed in the Order Details of your confirmation email. Unless otherwise specified, all viewing links for the 2023-24 season will be valid for the full 30 day viewing period.

Note: all concerts will be available to be viewed On Demand starting the Friday following the original performance dates.

How do I watch the concerts?

The On Demand concerts in our 2023-24 season can only be accessed through a dedicated link. Links will be provided in your confirmation email, and will look like this:

Each link is for one screen. If members of your household prefer to watch separately, you will need a unique link for each screen in use. Current subscribers automatically receive On Demand access to all concerts in their subscription package. The number of links you receive will correspond to the number of seats in your package.

If you have purchased a concert On Demand, you will receive your streaming links the day the performance becomes available (typically the Friday following the original performance date). To ensure delivery, consider adding to your email client's safe-sender list.

If you have not received the email containing your streaming links, check your junk or SPAM folders (if you use Gmail, also check your Promotions tab) before calling the box office at 312.551.1414 to have your links re-sent to you.
