RI Philharmonic Orchestra offers free tickets to federal employees through end of shutdown

Complimentary tickets available for Viennese Favorites & Beethoven 4
with Conductor Tania Miller and pianist Sara Davis Buechner, Jan. 26

Offer includes Open Rehearsal, Jan. 25

In response to the ongoing federal shutdown, the RI Philharmonic Orchestra is offering complimentary tickets to impacted federal employees until 30 days after the shutdown ends.

The offer starts with next week’s TACO Classical Series concert on Saturday (Jan. 26) at 8 p.m., and the Open Rehearsal on Friday (Jan. 25) at 5:30 p.m. Both performances are at The VETS, One Avenue of the Arts, Providence.

For the concert, Viennese Favorites & Beethoven 4, the RI Philharmonic Orchestra welcomes conductor Tania Miller and pianist Sara Davis Buechner performing R. Strauss’s Burleske and Mozart’s Rondo for Piano and Orchestra. In addition, Miller conducts Beethoven’s Symphony No.4, Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Overture, and J. Strauss’s On the Beautiful Blue Danube, prominently featured in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

 “In hopes of lessening the impact of the current shutdown on government employees and their families, we are inviting them to our upcoming concerts free of charge. Classical music is calming, stirs the soul and uplifts the sprit – something we think they could use in these challenging times.”
