Phoenix Symphony launches ‘Tickets for Our Troops’ Initiative

PHOENIX— The Phoenix Symphony is committed to spreading the joy of music throughout the communities it serves. In addition to performing concerts in homeless shelters and hospitals and teaching music classes in underserved schools, the Symphony is launching a new program called the ‘Tickets for Our Troops’ Initiative. This initiative formalizes the Symphony’s long-standing commitment to honor our community’s active service members and veterans by providing free tickets to performances throughout each concert season.

The Symphony believes in the power of music to provide wellness and healing to those who have given so much to valiantly serve our nation. Charitable donations to this initiative will allow The Phoenix Symphony to give over 7,000 free tickets to our nation’s heroes and their loved ones each year. “Having recently partnered with The Phoenix Symphony on distributing free concert tickets to our Veterans and military service members, I have witnessed first-hand the positive impact of the music on those who attended,” says Sam Young, President of the Veterans Medical Leadership Council and retired USAF Colonel. “Through this program, The Phoenix Symphony is expressing its appreciation for their military service as well as promoting wellness, stress management and reintegration for those who protect our freedoms.”

Launching the ‘Tickets for Our Troops’ Initiative will create new opportunities for the Symphony to develop further partnerships with organizations dedicated to enriching the lives of service members within our communities.

Media Availability: Email publicrelations@phoenixsymphony.org for media requests. Interviews are available on request.

Current and new donors can designate their gifts to this program. No donation is too small.
