ONNY Announces Family Rate for new Star Wars Matinee

The Orchestra of Northern New York, the North Country’s professional symphony orchestra, will offer a $30 family rate for a newly scheduled matinee of its STAR WARS concert. The promotion applies to two adults and up to three children, ages 13 and older in one’s immediate family.  Children, 12 and under, are free to all ONNY concerts, but tickets are required. This special event will take place at 3 p.m., Saturday, April 18, 2020 at Jefferson Community College’s Sturtz Theater.

The $30 family rate for the matinee only is made possible by a generous grant from the Northern New York Community Foundation and T. Urling and Mabel Walker Family Community Fund of the Northern New York Community Foundation. The goal is to give families with children the opportunity for all to experience the excitement of high quality, live music.

“As part of our continuing partnership with ONNY, we are pleased to help provide funding for an additional presentation of the STAR WARS  concert and also help make attending more affordable for families,” said Rande Richardson, Community Foundation executive director. 

Music director, Kenneth Andrews said, “The Orchestra of Northern New York is excited to bring a matinee performance of the Orchestra's spring blockbuster program, STAR WARS, to the Sturtz Theater stage on the campus of SUNY Jefferson. We are grateful to the Northern New York Community Foundation and the Walkers for helping to make this wonderful opportunity available for families in the greater Watertown region to experience this spectacular music by John Williams and the STAR WARS saga.” 

Ticket purchasers are advised that the family rate applies only to immediate family members. No additional discounts can be applied to the family rate.  ONNY subscribers and patrons may not exchange previously ordered tickets for the evening performance. Tickets at the $30 family rate must be purchased by telephone only at 315-267-2277. Unfortunately, no online sales can be completed for the special matinee rate.

“Tickets to the matinee would make a wonderful, last-minute holiday gift,” according to Executive Director, Kathy Del Guidice. A gift certificate can be emailed as soon as tickets are purchased through the box office.

The STAR WARS concert will enthrall all ages with the music of one of the greatest film composers of all time, John Williams, with selections from one of the most iconic and ever-popular film series.

Regular ticket prices apply for the second performance of STAR WARS also scheduled for April 18 at 7:30 pm.  Adults are $27, seniors and military personnel are $22, and college students with ID are $10. Children, 12 and under, are free to all ONNY concerts, but tickets are required.
