If you’ve never seen a performance by the Richmond Symphony, a special promotion this Friday might lure you in.
Interested in seeing the Richmond Symphony this season? If so, mark your calendars for this Friday (August 24th) as select tickets for the Masterworks concert series will be 50% off between 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM. This Richmond Symphony initiative is aimed towards people interested in experiencing the local symphony for the first time.
The Masterworks series showcases orchestral classics with a “contemporary twist.” Here are some of the Masterworks concerts this season that will have discounted tickets:
- Tchaikovsky’s “Piano Concerto No. 1”
- Mozart’s “Requiem”
- Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 5”
- Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring”
A full listing of upcoming performances is available here.
Patrons can purchase the discounted tickets online or at the Richmond CenterStage Box Office. Limit of four tickets per person. Free Masterworks tickets will be given to attendees 18 and under with the purchase of an adult ticket.
If classic orchestra seems a bit intimidating, the Richmond Symphony offers two other concert series not eligible for Friday’s discount.
The first is the Pops series, which presents a more contemporary version of the symphony. This year’s performances will include three-time Cuban jazz band Tiempo Libre and Grammy-nominated Broadway actress/singer Maureen McGovern.
There’s also a family-friendly version of the symphony called LolliPops. Performances this season include a rendition of “Peter and the Wolf” and “Scheherazade,” based on One Thousand and One Nights.”
