Santa Rosa Symphony Free Child Ticket Program

Santa Rosa Symphony Announces “One-for-One” Free Child Ticket Program for Classical Series Concerts during the 2016-17 Season

After the success of last year’s “One-for-One” free child ticket program, the Santa Rosa Symphony is once again offering this special opportunity for the 2016-17 Classical Series concert season. Over 100 children were able to experience the beauty and wonder of classical music with this offer last year; this year, families can take advantage of this opportunity to introduce their children to the world of Beethoven, Schumann, Elgar and more. For each paid adult ticket to a Classical Series concert, patrons can receive ONE FREE ticket for a youth age 7-17.  Concerts begin October 8, 2016 and go through May 2017.

This offer is available by phone or in person at the SRS Patron Services office: (707) 546-8742, 50 Santa Rosa Avenue (north entrance, first floor off elevator lobby) Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. This offer is not available online.

 About the Santa Rosa Symphony

Santa Rosa Symphony, the Resident Orchestra of the Green Music Center, is the third-oldest professional orchestra in California, and the largest regional symphony north of Los Angeles. Bruno Ferrandis, who began his tenure in 2006, is the fourth Music Director in the organization’s history. The Santa Rosa Symphony (SRS) is committed to core values of artistic excellence, innovative programming and community service. This year the SRS contributed over $4 million into the local economy.

Currently in its 89th season, the Symphony’s performance schedule includes 21 Classical Series concerts (7 sets), 7 Discovery Dress Rehearsal concerts, a 3-concert Family Series and a 4-concert Pops Series, as well as special concerts. The Symphony is also recognized for having one of the most comprehensive music education programs in California, serving nearly 23,000 youth annually.

Collaborations with schools and organizations across Sonoma County have gained SRS national attention and support. Awards include an American Symphony Orchestra League MetLife Award for Community Engagement and a first place award for adventurous programming in the 2012-2013 season from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP).
