That Was Fast.

Words to warm the heart of any concert presenter, found at the sfSoundBox site:

I received the concert announcement at 11:29 a.m. and bought a pair of tickets immediately. Good thing I did. If you didn't grab a ticket or two, keep an eye out for returns.

Both shows of both programs sell out in less than two hours, and no one even knows the program before purchasing a ticket. I guess it's not a stretch to say that makes it the hottest ticket in town that doesn't have the name Adele or Bruce on it. On the one hand, the SFS should be very, very happy. On the other hand, I think it would be very interesting to be a fly on the wall during the conversations about what they're doing (or perhaps more accurately, not doing) about getting the SoundBox audience into the main hall.

Yeah, I jumped on it immediately because I knew the tickets would go fast. The tickets are incredibly hot. Certainly part of the allure is that the number of tickets available is very limited, and part of the allure is that you're taking a little bit of a chance. Makes me wonder whether SFS should have a few Mystery Concerts.

The description that went out makes me wonder whether George Crumb's Vox Balanae is on the program. %^)

If I were a fly on the wall, I would be squeaking that a 25% discount to an SFS show should be made availaboe to everyone holding SoundBox tickets.

this fly on the wall would love a season pass to all the Soundbox performances.

Fire rules dictate an audience of only 500 per show, so I think we won't see season passes any time soon....except maybe to people buying some significant number of SFS mainstage tickets as well....which might defeat some of the purpose of SoundBox.
