The Nashville Symphony has announced that it will begin selling single tickets for the 2010-11 concert season on August 14; on that date from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. it will offer $20 tickets to selected fall concerts. Concerts to which the $20 ticket offer applies will include the orchestra’s September performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony; the November Rite of Spring program; Handel’s Messiah in December; and pops concerts in September and October featuring pop singers Jewel and Michael McDonald, saxophonist David Sanborn, and jazz organist/trumpeter/vocalist Joey DeFrancesco. The orchestra will also offer ticket-buyers on August 14 a $10 credit for every $100 spent, which may go toward any future purchase of 2010-11 Nashville Symphony concert tickets. Due to flooding in May, all concerts originally scheduled to take place at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center through December will be offered at alternate venues. A complete schedule for the orchestra’s 2010-11 season is posted at the orchestra’s website.
