|Hunting Licenses On Sale For Holiday Pops
Come Home for the Holidays has been sold out for a few weeks, however the Erie Phil is giving you another opportunity to attend the December 7 concert at the Warner Theatre.
Hunting licenses are on sale for $20 each and allow those who purchase the pass to hunt for an open seat shortly after the concert has begun.
“We’ve learned about the success of this effort from other orchestras,” Director of Marketing Karen Beardsley-Petit said. “We typically experience a significant number of no-shows for each concert, and this initiative will allow additional patrons to attend this holiday favorite.”
The concert features the Erie Philharmonic Chorus and the Young People’s Chorus of Erie, both under the direction of Gabrielle Dietrich. Sixteen-year-old pianist Sasha Voinov (right) will return to the Warner stage with holiday music he composed in honor of the orchestra’s 100th anniversary.
The hunting license enables pass holders to find a vacant seat soon after the start of the 8 PM concert at the discretion of the ushers. Seats must be vacated for valid ticket holders in the event of their late arrival. License holders who are unable to find a seat, or who are displaced by a ticket holder and unable to locate another seat, may exchange the pass for a full cash refund in the lobby no later than intermission.
For more information call the Erie Phil box office at 814-455-1375. A limited number of hunting licenses will be sold.
This Hanes Erie Pops Series concert is sponsored by PNC, Bianchi Honda, and Classy 100. The
2013-2014 anniversary season is presented by Scott Enterprises.
