Concert at La Madeleine

We want to go see a concert at La Madeleine. The last time we did that, we made a reservation on line well in advance, because we thought that it would "sell out." We made the reservation and then were told that we should pay when we arrived at the concert.

When we arrived, I tried to give someone my name and the printed reservation sheet, and was told that I could just buy tickets and that the reservation, and the piece of paper were really not needed.

So, this time, I'm trying to figure out if I should just "show up" or if I should make a reservation in advance.

Can you help?

Maybe it depends on the time of year you're going, but I was there for a concert in February 2010 and the place wasn't even 1/4 of the way filled. It's quite large. Would surprise me if it ever fills up, but perhaps for really special events it does. I would say just show up. Has anyone here ever been turned away because it was sold out?

the Madeleine is also the venue for numerous free concerts -- it seems to be the venue of choice for all those traveling church choirs who need a performance excuse for making the international trip

we have heard several choruses there as well as a brass quintet playing works by Bach (not THAT Bach but a more modern one who composed discordant music for brass)
