Music center policy changes go into effect

BOWLING GREEN, O.—The Bowling Green State University College of Musical Arts is changing concert ticket prices and box office policies effective Jan. 1.

After New Year's Day, tickets purchased on the day of College of Musical Arts performances at the Moore Musical Arts Center will cost $3 more than tickets purchased further in advance.

General admission tickets to college-sponsored performances in Kobacker hall will be $7 for students and senior citizens and $10 for adults in advance, and $10 and $13 respectively, on the day of the performance.

Advance tickets for opera productions will cost $9 for students and senior citizens and $12 for adults. The price of tickets purchased on the day of performances will be $12 and $15, respectively.

Single tickets for Festival Series concerts also will increase by $3 on the day of performances.

In addition, credit and debit cards will only be accepted for ticket purchases more than one hour prior to music events. Payment by cash, check or the BG1 Card will be the only tender accepted in the final hour before curtain time.

Officials said the changes are being made to offset the higher cost of music and supporting materials, as well as to encourage patrons to buy tickets further in advance so concerts can begin promptly as scheduled.

Those with questions may call Deborah Fleitz, director of public events at he College of Musical Arts, at 419-372-8654.
