SPOKANE SYMPHONY PASSES

Continuing in the winter and early spring of 2019, library customers can check out Spokane Symphony passes to select Sunday matinee performances, each conducted by Eckart Preu. This season is the final one with the Spokane Symphony for Eckart Preu, who has been serving as the musical director since 2004.

Multiple passes are available for each performance, and each pass is for one ticket that must be exchanged at the Symphony box office. We have a new online reservation system in 2019 to reserve these passes, available on January 6 for the first performance: Dvorák and Rachmaninoff.

Here are more details about the performance.

Dvorák and Rachmaninoff
Spokane Symphony Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski performs another great work from the violin repertoire: Dvorák’s Violin Concerto. Rachmaninoff’s choral symphony “The Bells,” loosely based on the Edgar Allan Poe poem, is considered by many to be one of his great masterpieces.

MARTIN WOLDSON THEATER AT THE FOX, 1001 W SPRAGUE AVE
Sunday, Jan 20, 3pm

To get even more out of the Spokane Symphony performance, you can attend a pre-concert talk, free to all ticketholders, one hour before each performance to learn about the music you will hear. Downtown street parking is free on Sundays.

To learn more and reserve your passes, visit our Museum & Cultural Passes webpage.
