Norfolk Arts Organizations Build Another Partnership; New Ticket Trade Program Launches in the Fall
The City's leading arts organizations partner up in a new and exciting way for arts lovers. Virginia Stage Company (VSC), Virginia Opera and The Virginia Symphony Orchestra have developed a partnership in their upcoming seasons to offer tickets to all three organizations when you become a member to just one.
In the upcoming season at VSC, when you purchase your season membership, you'll also get a ticket to the Symphony and a ticket to the Opera, and vice versa for all three arts organizations.
This partnership, initiated by VSC, will pull the arts organizations together in a way they expect will be mutually beneficial for all involved. "It's a great perk to becoming a member and it also allows existing arts lovers to venture over to other venues. We're so excited the Symphony and Opera were willing to join us in this partnership," says Janelle Burchfield, VSC's Marketing Director.
Director of Marketing at Virginia Opera, Maggi George, says "This is another step in the right direction of coordinating the sales and promotions efforts of the region's leading arts organizations and demonstrates to the community our willingness to work together for our mutual success."
Ticket vouchers are mailed out with season ticket packages. Some limitations do apply for each organization. This offer is available to a limited number of patrons on a first-come, first-served basis.
Virginia Stage Company is Southeastern Virginia's leading theater destination, serving an audience of over 70,000 annually at the Wells Theatre, in schools and in the community.
