|Community Ticketing Initiative supports Imagine 2020 Cultural Plan, in partnership with Denver Arts & Venues|
DENVER — March 26, 2015 — The Colorado Symphony is pleased to offer complimentary tickets to Denver-based organizations that serve children and families. Launched in October 2014 in partnership with Denver Arts & Venues, the Community Ticketing Initiative (CTI) serves diverse audiences who might not otherwise have a chance to experience the transformative power of live symphonic music. Working through a network of municipal agencies and community organizations, the CTI primarily serves low-income individuals and families for whom cost is a barrier to concert attendance.
The CTI supports the City of Denver’s Imagine 2020 Cultural Plan, which seeks to broaden access to the cultural arts for all Denver residents. To date, more than 1,500 first-time individuals have redeemed vouchers through the CTI. An additional 7,824 vouchers have been distributed to organizations across metro Denver.
Organizations that serve the target population request vouchers that can be redeemed for any concert that remains in the Colorado Symphony’s 2014/15 season. These vouchers are then distributed to individuals and families by the partner organizations. Vouchers are redeemed at the Colorado Symphony Box Office and exchanged for tickets; tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to space availability.
