New free Philharmonic program offered to attract a younger audience, Orchestra X

Local News

The Erie Philharmonic wants to engage more young adults. 

The organization is launching ‘Orchestra X‘ today.  The program will offer a free membership to people ages 20-40, allowing them access to discounts, free seat upgrades, and behind-the-scenes tours.  The Erie Philharmonic says younger people are often underrepresented in their audiences. 

Executive Director Steve Weiser tells us, “…we wanted to find a way to… reach into sort of a new demographic for your symphonic audience. We want to find a way to encourage young people of all ages to come and check out everything that the Philharmonic has to offer.”

Those who sign up now will be able to attend an exclusive reception after their November 3rd concert.
