2017-18 FSO Season 68 Ticket Update

August 14, 2017

Dear Subscribers,

It has come to my attention that many of you have been waiting for the Central Ticketing Office at NAU to call you about renewing your subscription. Some of the perks we’ve enjoyed in the past will now be a little different so please be patient with us.

I am happy to report to you that we think all the challenges some of you experienced should be corrected now (a tape recording that the office was closed during the middle of the day; misinformation about prices of subscriptions; etc.). Therefore, if you gave up trying to renew your subscription, or just haven’t gotten around to it yet, please try again now.  Single ticket sales will start tomorrow so if you have been a subscription holder in the past and don’t want to lose your seats, call CTO today – 928-523-5661.

Remember, we have much to celebrate this year:

  • Charles Latshaw will start as our new Music Director/Conductor and he is very keen to begin his relationship with our community. Emails have been flying.  Come and witness the excitement!
  •  If you buy a 5- or 6-package season, you will get free parking in the Ardrey garage.  That is especially helpful during the snowy, winter months.
  • Our Season ends in April with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. This spectacular performance will include the Master Chorale of Flagstaff and the NAU Shrine of the Ages chorus. Always a must-see!
If you’ve let your subscription lapse, please consider renewing in order to stay connected with this incredible community treasure.  It is because of our loyal patrons that we have been around for 68 seasons! Help us to be around for 68 more.

Sincerely,

Cheryl Ossenfort
Interim Executive Director
Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra
