How do I use my credit from last season toward a purchase for this season?

Unfortunately, we are not able at this time to transfer last season’s credits held in your CAPA CBUSArts account over to the new platform.   While we continue to explore ways to integrate both systems, we ask that in the meantime you contact the CBUSArts Ticket Center to make arrangements to receive a refund for your credit amount or generously donate the amount to the Jazz Arts Group.
