Performance raises funds for music programs

On September 30, the Kennesaw State University Symphony Orchestra will perform with legendary rock band Kansas at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre at 8 p.m. In 2010, Kansas started a Collegiate Symphony Tour to help raise awareness and funds for college and university music programs. Due to its success, Kansas is continuing the tour through the fall of 2011. A percentage of the ticket sales from the performance will go to KSU.

Tickets can be purchased for $37 and $57 at the Bank of North Georgia Box Office at the Cobb Energy Centre, or by calling 800-745-3000. A limited number of tickets are available for $27 at the box office. Use the password "KSU" to receive the discount online. Ticket prices do not include fees.

There are also a limited number of student tickets for $20 with a student ID card at the Cobb Energy Centre box office only. Two tickets can be purchased per ID. (Tickets cannot be purchased from the KSU box office.)

The KSU Symphony Orchestra began in the fall of 2004. The orchestra performs a wide variety of repertoire from all time periods and styles. Students in the orchestra are made up of music majors and non-music majors with an interest in orchestral repertoire and come from distinguished high school programs and honor ensembles.
