$20 Tickets to the Boston Symphony!

11/25/2008 12:01:00 AM
This is pretty amazing news! I've been wanting to go to the Symphony again since I went to opening night back in September (here). Now, it looks like I'll have the chance and save some serious cash while I'm at it ... luckily I have a ways to go before I hit the 40 yr old age limit.

The Boston Symphony Orchestra will offer $20 concert tickets to patrons under the age of 40 to BSO concerts for the remainder of the 2008-2009 Symphony Hall season, thanks to a generous contribution by an anonymous underwriter who will pay (subsidize) the difference between the full and discounted ticket prices. Four thousand $20 tickets, normally priced from $29 to $115, will be made available to more than 45 Boston Symphony concerts throughout the remainder of the season.

Patrons who take advantage of this special offer can purchase $20 tickets to 13 different BSO programs including two programs under the direction of James Levine--Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra on January 29 and 31 and February 3 and the world premiere performance of Gunther Schuller’s Where the Word Ends on February 5, 6 and 7; Kurt Masur leading and all-Mendelssohn program on January 22, 24, and 27; Alan Gilbert leading a program of the music of Sibelius, Rachmaninoff, and Ives on March 5,6,7 and 10; Hans Graf conducting Brahms and Bruckner in a program featuring violinist Janine Jansen and cellist Alisa Weilerstein on March 19, 20, 21 and 24; Charles Dutoit leading a program of music by Ravel, Prokofiev, and Stravinsky on March 26, 27 , and 28; and Sir Colin Davis leading Berlioz’s Te Deum on April 30, May 1 and 2.

    FYI: I tried buying these discount tickets on the BSO's website but it wouldn't tell me which seats I would be purchasing. So I called them up and they were able to tell me which particular seats were available (they were very good ones, too).

    I also bought online and noticed that they did not specify seats. I just decided at that price - not to worry about it. It is a listening event rather then a seeing event anyway! but I am glad you verified and got good seats!
