Orchestra offers free tix for college students

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Sept. 24, 2008

The Philadelphia Orchestra has a new program to give college students access to free tickets to concerts.

And to draw attention to the program, they're offering free tickets to the concert on Thursday night, Sept. 25, 2008. To get the tickets, college students need to login to the eZseatU program to reserve a general admission ticket.

Students can then print out a ticket at home, show up at the Kimmel Center with their college ID and enjoy the concert.

After the concert, students can wander the Kimmel Center plaza, hear a live band, eat free food and meet members of the orchestra.

Under the eZseatU program, for the rest of the season, college students pay a one-time membership fee of $25. Then, they can reserve seats and print out tickets to upcoming concerts for free.

For non-students, there's an eZseat membership program that provides a 25% discount on tickets, once you pay the membership fee. For information on that program, click on this link: Philadelphia Orchestra EZseat program
