Edmonton Symphony Sells Yo-Yo Ma Tickets on eBay

Classic Arts News   Edmonton Symphony Sells Yo-Yo Ma Tickets on eBay
The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra is selling on eBay a bundle of tickets to its gala opener with Yo-Yo Ma next month, which has been sold out since April. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the orchestra's education programs.

The winning bidder will receive two tickets to the performance (valued at C$300), two tickets to the gala reception (C$350) and two backstage passes; bidding starts at C$350.

In May, the orchestra auctioned off a similar package on eBay for over C$1,000. Bidding started at C$300 and included a pair of concert tickets, limousine service and a backstage pass for the same concert.

The September 13 performance at Winspear Centre marks the cellist's first appearance with the orchestra since 1992, and set a sales record for the ESO, selling more than 1,800 tickets in under three months. On its program are Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, Kabalevsky's Cello Concerto No. 1 and Brahms's Trio No. 1.
