Pacific Symphony Offering 50% Off Tickets

Who doesn't love a good sale–especially in these dreary economic times? Here's one: the Pacific Symphony is celebrating its upcoming season–their 20th year with musical director/conductor Carl St.Clair, pictured–with a chance to score some half-price tickets.

This Sunday and Monday only (August 30 and 31), head to the Pacific Symphony website, for a 50% discount on each single ticket bought online. The sale ends 11:50 p.m. Monday, August 31st.

The next event on Pacific Symphony's calendar is the “Tchaikovsky Spectacular – Music for the Cure” at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine on September 12. Following that is three nights of “Midori Plays Tchaikovsky” from September 24-26 at RenNe and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. This season's pops series kicks off with Patty LuPone at Segerstrom Concert Hall, October 8-10.

The upcoming 2009-2010 season of the Pacific Symphony, as could be expected, is very personal for St.Clair.

“For this season of the Hal and Jeanette Segerstrom Family Classics Series, I have dug deep into the past 20 years to pick the orchestral works that have moved me and I believe have moved our audiences–pieces like Berlioz' 'Symphony fantastique,' Strauss' An Alpine Symphony and Gershwin's Concerto in F, this time with some surprising 21st-century enhancements,” he said via press release.

The pieces for the season highlights the melding of modernity and classics with a new series of multi-media concerts called “Music Unwound.” These concerts will incorporate visual elements to highlight music such as Richard Strauss' Alpine Symphony and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, “Pathetique.”
