More Seattle Symphony dirt

Anonymous said...

The Sea Symph just announced their ticket prices for the 2007-08 season. Benaroya will probably be the only concert hall in the world that charges more (MUCH more) to sit in the 3rd tier than in the 2nd tier; in fact it will be as much as a seat in the prime part of the "Orchestra" seating area. Is someone "nuts" at Benaroya or simply trying evily to bankrupt the Symphony?????

Melinda Bargreen writes about this in this morning's Mar 2 Seattle Times

Your product isn't selling so you raise prices and alienate your best customers??

This is definately in accordance with my beliefs of SSO's continuing deterioration.

Thanks for the suggestion we read M. Bargreen on the SeaSymph's crazy pricing, especially on the 3rd Tier! BUT her article on this, which I found on the internet at seattletimes.com is in the March 1 issue, not the March 2 issue as your blogspot indicated. This March 1 Bargreen is a must-read!!

Sorry!!!! You had it right!!!! I just re-read your blog and you did write "March 2"!! However, if this mistake of mine draws more attention to the Bargreen article, so much the better!

Lane Savant stands semi-tall, wearing homemade armor, made out of Alcoa aluminum wrap taped together with flattened tin cans and beer cans, hoisting a great lance, 12' long, wired and roped together in 4 pieces, and a rubber lancehead so that you will bruise your prey, but not terminate it; tilting the lance at the windmills surrounding Benaroya, standing alone to face the SSO Behemoth --yes, that is Lane Savant, world, and he will simply brook no more insults. The gauntlet is thrust upon the ground, a oven mitt wrapped silver. Do not pity this mad warrior, this fed up consumer; for in his heart he is doing something significant, even if most everyone else does not realize it. But if they had read THE STORY, and were regular readers of FEEL FREE TO LAUGH, they too would be in the know, and they would be cheering for Doug Palmer to never give in, or give up; to fight the good fight.
