Grand Ole Opry, Nashville Symphony team up to provide money-saving offers to each music venueTWO GREAT SOUNDS. TWO GREAT OFFERS. ONE GREAT CITY.
Two of Music City's distinctive live music experiences, the Grand Ole Opry® presented by Humana® and the Nashville Symphony, have come together to offer fans money-saving values this spring in celebration of Nashville's diverse music offerings.
The offer is billed "Two Great Sounds. Two Great Offers. One Great City." When music fans book tickets to either the Opry or the Symphony through July 10, 2010 and mention or enter the code "GreatCity," they will save $5.00 per ticket on up to eight tickets.*
The Grand Ole Opry, the show that made country music famous, is set to begin a months-long celebration of its 85th Anniversary later this spring. The Nashville Symphony, regarded as one of the top orchestras in the nation, is in the last half of its 2009/10 concert season, which still includes offerings in its classical, pops, jazz and family series.
"Spring is a great time to get out and celebrate all the great music Nashville has to offer," said Ronda Helton, Sr. Director of Marketing for the Nashville Symphony. "This offer came about very organically, as members of the Opry and Symphony staffs got together at a local restaurant one day and started talking about how even though they work in the Nashville music business, they don't always get to take part in the diverse musical experiences the city offers. We all committed to enjoying more music this spring, and we wanted to give other music lovers in Nashville an incentive to do so as well."
Grand Ole Opry tickets are available at 800-SEE-OPRY and www.opry.com. Upcoming Opry shows include performances by Lady Antebellum, Loretta Lynn, Charley Pride, Josh Turner, and more. Nashville Symphony tickets are available through the Schermerhorn Symphony Center Box Office at 615-687-6400 or at NashvilleSymphony.org.
