Discounts open door to music

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (CSO) is promoting some great deals for college students to see performances at a cheaper price.

This season, students can receive discounts on tickets, attend College Nites and see Cincinnati Pops concerts for only $10.

The CSO holds two promotions for college students. College Nites began in the 2001-2002 season, and “Free Freshmen” night began last season.

Debra Bell, assistant manager of audience development of the CSO, talked about the opportunities offered for college students.

“At College Nites, which are in October, January and April a $10 ticket gets them not only a concert by our world-class orchestra, but a party just for students after the concert with a live band, free food, soft drinks, and prizes.” Bell said.

Students also have a chance to met Paavo J
