Roy Thomson Hall
URGENT UPDATE: Please note that the Elephant & Castle Pub, our originally scheduled meeting point, has closed for renovations. We will NOT be meeting at the Elephant & Castle Pub. Please see me in the Box Office Lobby of Roy Thompson Hall between 7:30 and 7:45 PM and introduce yourself. I will have your tickets for you. The show starts at 8:00 PM.
We are going back to Roy Thompson Hall for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra's performance of Mardi Gras: New Orleans Jazz music.
This jubilant, toe-tapping tribute takes you to the city where jazz was born—New Orleans—when it's at its most vibrant and colourful: Mardi Gras! If you like toe tapping music, this is the evening for you 'cos your toes are gonna be a 'tappin!
As a special treat this evening, you are going to enjoy Byron Stripling's blazing horn and winning personality take centre stage for a spicy gumbo of classic jazz favourites. If you have not heard this man play the trumpet before, here's a sample Youtube video for you. Just click on the play button below.
We have reserved seats in the balcony in section R8. Every seat at the Roy Thompson Hall is a good seat. We are especially close to the orchestra stage sitting above it.
Our special group discounted ticket price is $36.75 ea. This is roughly an 18% discount from the regular price of $44.75 ea. All taxes and ticket/box office fees are included.
Please see me in the lobby of Roy Thompson Hall near the box office window. The main entrance is on Simcoe St.
I will be in the lobby from 7:30 to 7:45 PM, wearing a large yellow name tag with my name on it. At 7:45 PM, I will go inside and get seated. If you arrive after 7:45 PM, please show your ID to the staff at the box office window and they will give you your ticket.
