50th Anniversary - 50 Years of Music in CNY
This season marks the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra's (SSO)
50th anniversary. To celebrate, the SSO is looking back at the past 50 years by inviting back former music directors and conductors, performing repertoire of historical significance to the orchestra and featuring exciting guest artists who represent both the past and future of classical music.
In order to best serve the community in a time of economic tribulation, SSO has lowered prices for its 2010-2011 season. Now more tickets are more accessible to more people.
Season ticket holders may now purchase their tickets. Single ticket buyers will be able to purchase tickets in early September.
Single Ticket Prices
All regional single ticket prices will be a flat rate of $20. Student rush tickets, as always, are $5 the day of the concert with valid student identification.
To purchase a subscription, call (315) 424-8200 or (800) 724-3810, or visit SyracuseSymphony.org.
