Let the symphony save your college soul

Ya, you can sit here too

There are lots of nights out you may have forgotten, and then there are nights you did something cool and different with your friends and you actually ended up remembering it.  Like that time you went downtown and sat by the orchestra in a world-class Symphony Hall…for example.  You wanna impress a date? Do something with your friends y’all won’t forget for a minute? The best part is, the Symphony gives students the best seats, for 20 bucks on college nights.

This post is made possible by the lovely San Francisco Symphony

Students get the best seats, for 20 bucks this 4/20

This Friday, 4/20, is a college night at the Symphony, all you gotta do is register on the Symphony’s student tickets page, (takes less than a couple minutes).  And you get incredible seats at the Symphony for like a hundred bucks less than everybody else.  The music Friday is going to be French and beautiful, and the dress code is whatever you want it to be.

Student Tickets here
Fri, Apr 20th at 8:00pm

Conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier takes the stage with the SF Symphony to showcase the music of French greats -Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.  Two of the most important, influential French composers of the 20th century-and they were friends and colleagues.  Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano/vocalist Susan Graham will sing something incredible, and there will be a full bar and a photo booth with a green screen of “French” themed backdrops.  Intermission is 20 minutes long.

Pick your seat, for real, just pick your seat, and its yours

When you sign up as a student, every Monday they’ll send you an email listing the concerts you can buy Student Tickets for and you’ll be able to choose from the best seats available—every seat, from the balcony to the front row, is just $20.

The award-winning orchestra has been elevating San Francisco audiences for over 100 years with powerful and amazing performances and they go beyond the line of duty to give back to the community that supports them. Adventures in Music is just one example of the symphony’s philanthropic big heart. The program partners with the San Francisco Unified School District to provide “equitable access to music education by reaching every San Francisco public elementary school student in grades 1 through 5”. Keeping kids interested in music and making it accessible for people on a budget is a big part of their core mission, and now college students can reap the benefits as well.

Not a student? You can get regular tickets to Thursday, Friday, or Saturday’s show here.
