If you can't use your Yo-Yo Ma tickets....

We hope you are looking forward to the April 30th Masterworks series season finale concert featuring Yo-Yo Ma as much as we are.

As you know, this concert (noted recently by the Burlington Free Press as the classical music event of the year) has been sold out since September. We currently have a waiting list of some 90 people looking for more than 200 total tickets. Obviously, many will not be able to be accommodated.

We always encourage ticket holders to return any tickets that will not be used to the VSO so they may be used by others. With every Masterworks concert selling out this season, this request became even more important. Now with the Yo-Yo Ma appearance, we know every seat will be filled if ticket holders do not let unused tickets go to waste.

If for any reason you find you will be unable to use all the tickets you ordered, please contact Mia at the VSO office at (800) VSO-9293, ext. 10, so we can make these tickets available to others.

Thank you.

P. S. - Ensure that you won’t miss a single note by subscribing to the VSO’s 2011/2012 Masterworks series. Contact Mia for details! If you have already subscribed, thank you!

Keep reading for the April 30 Masterworks series finale program.

2010/2011 Masterworks Series 5
Saturday, April 30, 2011
Flynn Center, Burlington

To have the most famous classical musician in the world on stage with us at the Flynn is a dream come true! The legendary Yo-Yo Ma (who is not only the ultimate artist but also a U.N. Messenger of Peace) joins his good friend Jaime Laredo and the VSO for two popular showpieces. The program opens with Poulenc’s delightfully satirical Sinfonietta, and also includes Ravel’s charming Pavane.

Jaime Laredo, conductor
Yo-Yo Ma, cello

POULENC Sinfonietta
TCHAIKOVSKY Variations on a Rococo Theme
RAVEL Pavane for a Dead Princess
SAINT-SAENS Cello Concerto No. 1
