Utah Symphony-Utah Opera to Offer Students 'All Access Pass'
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera (USUO) has given classical music lovers who are students another reason for a standing ovation.
Students of any age who want to experience the thrill of live classical music can purchase an All-Access Student Pass for $49 and attend as many Utah Symphony and Utah Opera performances as they'd like during a season. All Access tickets are available the night of the performance starting at 6 PM and are subject to availability. Students are seated in the best available seat at the time of redemption.
"It is extremely important to me that live performances of the symphony and opera are fully accessible to today's youth, so that we can ignite the passion for music that has inspired me throughout my life," said Musical Director Thierry Fischer.
"The purpose of creating this program for students is to give younger audiences the opportunity to experience a wide variety of music throughout the season," explained Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Jon Miles. This will be the third season when the All Access Passes have been available.
USUO features other programs designed to make classical music more affordable for young audience members. USUO Upbeat extends $10-20 advance tickets to most Utah Symphony and Utah Opera performances for anyone 30 or younger. Those who purchase tickets to at least four (4) performances from the 2013-14 season through the Upbeat Design-A-Series, which allows them to create a customized subscription ticket package, can purchase $10 tickets to performances normally not available through theUSUO Upbeat program.
