Utah Symphony offers free tickets to students through new program

SALT LAKE CITYThe Utah Symphony has created a new program allowing students (K-12) easier access to free tickets to see a concert of his or her choice throughout the season. Although free tickets have been offered to schools for many years, these tickets often only went to students in orchestra or band. With this new program in place all students will have the same access to free tickets through www.SymphonyforStudents.org.

The website allows students to print a voucher to any one concert (*restrictions apply) which can be redeemed for a ticket at the Abravanel Hall box-office up to 30 minutes before show-time. The student will just need to show a valid student ID when redeeming the voucher and they will be able to experience a full-scale orchestral concert for free.

Parents also receive a special discount of just $17 a ticket (good for 2 tickets) when attending with their student(s). The accompanying parents of fee-waiver students can get two free tickets to the chosen performance.

Although students are only eligible for one free ticket each year, they are eligible for $8 tickets to almost any concert throughout the season. Students also receive all the benefits of being a season ticket holder when they order at least four performances for $8 each as part of the Student Designer Series. Students can visit www.SymphonyforStudents.org for more information.

Students and parents aren’t the only ones benefiting from special programs this season. Teachers are also included in a unique offer where they receive a 40% discount on single tickets when they purchase a Utah Educator Subscription. For more information, teachers can call 533-NOTE.

*Student discounts are not available for Lollipops concerts, the Messiah Sing-In and Video Games Live.
