After months of waiting patiently, music lovers were lined up outside the doors of the Sudbury Symphony office at 9 a.m. Aug. 1, determined to be the first to have their choice of seats for the Orchestra’s 39th season.
“We’ve never seen anything like this,” executive director Dawn Cattapan said, in a press release.
“Our subscribers have been seated and those who wish to attend one or two concerts know the best seats go first. But to have patrons lined up outside our doors at 9 a.m. is a first.”
Subscriptions for the orchestra’s six-concert season went on sale in March, with subscribers getting first access to seats for "Les Miserables: In Concert," a three-night co-production between the SSO and YES Theatre.
The general public can now get tickets for this unique event.
In addition to the special presentation, tickets were also in high-demand for the orchestra’s Oct. 18 season opener, "Swinging Sixties," conducted by legendary Canadian conductor, composer and arranger Howard Cable and featuring Grand Bend crooner Michael Vanhevel.
Tickets for the Sudbury Symphony’s season start at $13 for those 29 and under, with all other tickets starting at $27.
The orchestra also has a Christmas Matinée for families beginning at $5 a ticket, and special presentations starting at $25.
