Yea! I received my tickets!!
While I renewed my season tickets to the Columbus Symphony Orchestra in person last month, I didn’t receive my actual tickets until yesterday. While ordering them, I was told that the brochures (or something) weren’t yet printed. Who knows? I just figured they were also possibly switching around some of the guest conductors to bring in Music Director candidates since Maestro Jean-Marie Zeitouni’s contract expires after this year. 😦
I received my 5 tickets (4-pack at the Ohio plus the season opener) yesterday along with a letter from Bill Conner (CEO – CAPA). My friend who also bought a 4-pack of tickets with me this year should have received hers as well. Yea!
Unfortunately, I have to exchange my season opener which is a bummer, but I didn’t realize when I bought it that it was the same weekend as the Bicentennial celebration back in New Albany, Indiana where I will be in a parade! Well – my mom, at least, will be the grand marshal since we descend from the founders of New Albany (again – Indiana, not Ohio!). I may yet be relegated to the sidelines! HA!
Fortunately, I really can exchange the ticket – quite easily, in fact – which I will do in favor of the Mozart: Father and Son concert at the Southern. I’m REALLY excited about that one – Rossini: Barber of Seville, W.A. Mozart Horn Concerto #3, Leopold Mozart Horn Concerto in D and Haydn’s “Surprise” Symphony – #94. WOW! It’s the same weekend as the annual International Festival at Vet’s Memorial where I’ll be working along with my Peace Corps group, so it’ll make for a long, albeit very fun, day!
Individual tickets for season ticket holders go on sale August 1 which is when I can get tickets for Lang Lang (WOW!) and the Mozart and Schumann concert – also at the Southern. I already have tickets to see Mozart’s Requiem in April.
I keep saying “wow,” but WOW! All this Mozart is fantastic! And Beethoven’s 5th? And Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto #2 and… SO COOL! I’m in classical music heaven. LOVE IT!
