The Spokane Symphony will continue its College Card discount-ticket program this season, through which college students pay $25 for a pass good to any Classics, SuperPops, or Splash concert at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. The program was launched in 2013-14. Starting each Tuesday morning of a concert week, students may visit the box office to pick up tickets with the Spokane Symphony College Card and student ID. New this year, the orchestra has established a College Card Facebook group designed to facilitate ride-sharing to and from concerts. The Spokane Symphony’s 2014-15 season opened on September 27 with an Elvis Presley-themed pops program, led by Morihiko Nakahara. Music Director Eckhart Preu will lead the first classics concert on October 11, a program that will feature the U.S. premiere of GHB/Tanzaggregat by Serbian composer Marko Nikodijevic, as well as Villa-Lobos’s The Enchanted Bird, Franck’s Symphonic Variations, De Falla’s Nights in the Gardens of Spain, and Marquez’s Danzón No. 2.
