Maryland Symphony’s free student ticket initiative enters third season

Posted on: October 24, 2012

The Maryland Symphony Orchestra will provide free tickets to its 2012-13 Masterworks concerts to area students in grades 1 through 12. It is the third consecutive season that the Hagerstown-based orchestra has run the free-ticket program, which is available to public-school, private-school, and homeschooled students. The program is supported by a grant from Susquehanna Bank, the MSO’s corporate sponsor, and a grant from MSO Music Director Elizabeth Schulze. The MSO’s four Masterworks programs this season are scheduled for November 10 and 11, February 16/17, March 16/17, and April 20/21. “Through this partnership with the MSO, we are supporting access to the arts for the youth of the region, and making a greater impact on the communities where our employees and customers live and work,” said Susquehanna Bank Regional President R. L. Fisher in a statement. Schulze commented, “This is an opportunity to open doors not only to new ideas and sound world, but more importantly to a future educated and enlightened citizenry.”
