Detroit Symphony offers $20 tickets to city residents

Posted on: October 18, 2011


A report Monday (10/17) on the WDIV News Channel 4 website (Detroit) states, “The Detroit Symphony Orchestra announced Monday it would offer an exclusive ticket price for Detroit residents for the first time in its history. The Detroit Rush Initiative offers Detroiters single tickets to any classical or jazz concert at Orchestra Hall for just $20. Patrons can begin reserving seats in any section excluding the box level up to two weeks before a performance. Each resident may buy two tickets per concert. A valid photo ID with a Detroit address is all that is required. … ‘As the DSO extends its reach as a community-supported orchestra to six metro Detroit neighborhood residencies, we’re celebrating Southeast Michigan’s treasured cultural landmark, our home at majestic Orchestra Hall in the Max M. Fisher Music Center,’ said Kareem George, DSO managing director of community programs. ‘We’re playing our part in Detroit’s renaissance by recognizing our closest neighbors and bolstering the growing sense of pride that emanates from Midtown and the city at large.’ Later this year, the DSO will re-launch its wildly popular 37/11 ticketing program for young professionals, offering an annual membership at $37 and tickets to each Orchestra Hall concert thereafter at just $11. Membership includes invitations to exclusive events and more.”
