The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Jacksonville Symphony, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and Rogue Valley Symphony Orchestra are among the orchestras recently announcing ticketing initiatives for the 2011-12 season. The new CSO Ignite program will allow concertgoers ages 18 to 30 to purchase $12 tickets to most Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra programs, beginning the week of the concert. The Jacksonville Symphony will continue its $25 Sound Check Card for students age 25 and under, good for admission to Masterworks, Fusion, and Coffee series concerts for the entire 2011-12 season; the card also allows up to two accompanying admissions for $10 each. For the third year, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra is offering its $25 “Campus to Concert Hall” season pass for students; the pass buys a seat to all LACO’s Orchestral Series concerts, Westside Connections concerts, plus a “Discover Bach’s Magnificat” concert at Pasadena’s Ambassador Auditorium on February 12, 2012; passholders can also purchase up to three additional tickets for each concert at $10. As part of a rollout of a broader range of ticket prices this season, the Rogue Valley Symphony in Oregon is partnering with eleven other local arts organizations to offer up to two $5 tickets to anyone presenting an Oregon Trail card from the Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
