TOLEDO, OH – The Toledo Symphony (TSO) is pleased to announce that individual tickets for its 68th season go on sale to the general public on August 1st both on toledosymphony.com and via 419-246-8000. The Symphony plans to offer a wide variety of concerts. A full listing is available at www.ToledoSymphony.com.

Beginning Monday, August 1st, all event tickets can be purchased online, over the phone, or at the box office (1838 Parkwood Avenue, Toledo, across from the art museum). Full subscription packages will still be available for purchase. Ticket prices start at $15-22 for most concerts.

Strong Demand for Michael W. Smith Holiday Concert and The Music of Michael Jackson

Two of this year’s pops events are expected to have strong demand in the first week of ticket on-sale. Fans are encouraged to call the box office next week in order to get the best seats.

The Michael W. Smith Holiday Concert will take place at the Stranahan Theater on November 26, 2011. Mr. Smith has won three Grammy’s and garnered more than 15 million in album sales over his multi-decade career. “It’s a Wonderful Christmas” is an extremely well-received Christmas variety program that features Mr. Smith alongside the Toledo Symphony with special guest singers. Tickets range from $32-$72. Just over 1200 seats are available for this performance.

On March 23rd and 24th, the Music of Michael Jackson will arrive at the Stranahan Theater. This trip down memory lane will trace the historic career of the King of Pop through the 60’s-90’s. The Windborne Production team (creators of last year’s wildly successful The Music of Led Zeppelin) once again teams up with the Toledo Symphony for two nights of chart-toppers, including ABC, I’ll Be There, Beat It, Thriller, The Way You Make Me Feel and much more. Tickets range from $22-$62.

Classics Series Highlights

Enjoy fanfare (Pictures at an Exhibition in February), romance (All Tchaikovsky season opener) and virtuosity (the return of the acclaimed Kirill Gerstein with Rachmaninoff in November) this season on the classics series at the Peristyle Theater.

Special collaborations with the Toledo Museum of Art, the Bowling Green State University Wind Symphony, Toledo Glassmen Drum and Bugle Corps, TSO alumnus David Shifrin on clarinet, and a musical postcard from the 2011 Spring for Music festival are featured.

TSO premieres include Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 6, Narong Prangcharoen’s Phenomenon, Corigliano’s Circus Maximus, Britten’s Sinfonia di Requiem, John Adam’s Wound Dresser (based on text by Walt Whitman), and Bright Sheng’s Flute Moon.

The symphony season culminates in May with Dvorak’s New World Symphony and Sibelius’ Violin Concerto with Chinese virtuoso Tianwa Yang.

Family Series Partners Announced for 2011-2012

Based on the huge success of last year, the TSO will partner with a different family-friendly nonprofit for each concert, including The Toledo Museum of Art (Halloween Spooktacular), WGTE (Super Why Saves the Day!), Toledo Zoo (Animusica), and the Toledo Mudhens (Take Me Out to the Ballgame). Pre-concert activities at 2PM will encourage families to explore the cultural riches of the region. All concerts are at 3PM on Sundays in the Peristyle. A free child subscription comes with every paid adult subscription.

Ticket packages are available by calling the Symphony at 419-246-8000 or visiting www.toledosymphony.com.
