Victims of Hurricane Katrina who have fled to Columbia, South Carolina, will get free admission to the South Carolina Philharmonic's entire 2005-06 season, the orchestra announced.

"Columbia is generously offering its support in so many ways, and we are happy that the South Carolina Philharmonic can help by providing this unique and uplifting experience to those displaced by the hurricanes," executive director Rhonda Hunsinger said.

Evacuees can get free tickets by presenting a "Carolina Cares" identification card at the Philharmonic's box office.

In a press release, the Philharmonic noted that surveys have found that "audience members are moved by a live classical concert, experiencing a wide range of emotions, including comfort, peace, relaxation, joy, inspiration, contemplation, exultation, and passion."
