REMINDER & UPDATE - Cleveland Orchestra Events

From: Bill J.
Sent on: Friday, August 30, 2013 5:13 PM
Hello Music Cleveland!

I've noticed that many members are not visiting our home page on a regular basis.  You are missing some very cool concerts and events, not to mention some pretty neat discounts.  (click here)

Just a quick note and reminder about our Cleveland Orchestra schedule.  I'm pleased to have our entire schedule posted with some details like restaurants TBA later.  Our first event is September 20th, the first FRIDAYS@7 event of the season.  Actually I have scheduled all of these popular concerts.  

Because of the timing, it has been difficult to work in a formal post-concert dinner.  So instead we'll plan on drinks (or a late dinner if you want) after the concert.  The first one is set for Nighttown which is a short drive from Severance Hall.  They are open late and can easily accommodate us without a formal reservation.  Any recommendations for future post-concert spots are welcome.

Some of you may have noticed a plethora of announcements and emails last week as we scheduled Cleveland Orchestra concerts.  I apologize if these were bothersome but there was a purpose to that madness.  I wanted to be certain that members had the advantage of using our Members-Only DISCOUNT for early seat selection and ticket purchase.

As you may know, Orchestra Season Subscriptions gobble up many of the prime seats.  This year, thanks to our friends at the Orchestra, we were able to identify and schedule our events and obtain discount codes.  For members that means a much better selection of seats with an early purchase.

Unfortunately many have not yet RSVPed or purchased tickets.  Just be on notice that many of these events are extremely popular and your seat selections my be quite limited if you wait.  I expect that many - especially the FRIDAYS@7 concerts and our Sunday, February 16th with Pierre Boulez will sell-out well in advance.

So you will have a distinct advantage in both discounts and seat selection if you act quickly.

And, I'm pleased to announce that we are expanding our horizons to include The Kent Stage and a little more excitement in music genre.  We are attending the Saturday, October 12th concert by Over the Rhine with one of our favorites opening - Tift Merritt.  We'll have dinner before at Pufferbelly Ltd. in Kent.

The Kent Stage is offering $25 tickets for just $20 including fees!  That calculates to about a 30-percent savings.  Seriously, a $20 ticket for this world-class music is a great deal!

Over the Rhine was interviewed on NPR this morning (click here to listen)

Aside for some great Orchestra and Nighttown concerts we're also headed to the Winchester Friday, September 13 for a John Denver tribute.  He was one of my all-time favorites so I'm excited about this one! We're having dinner before at Players on Madison.

Again, if you haven't visited our home page recently you may be missing some great concerts.  (click here)
Go there now! 

Want to attend something that we haven't scheduled?  Consider becoming an Event Organizer or Host.  Its not difficult and just might result in a complementary ticket for you.  

Happy Listening!

Bill
