Honolulu Symphony 3 Tickets For $45 Special

For some, these hard economic times have put a damper on leisure activities, so the Honolulu Symphony has responded with a great “3 For $45” ticket special happening now through Oct. 22. For this limited time, the popular concerts in the Halekulani MasterWorks and Toyota Pops series cost just $15 each - that’s up to 50 percent off regular ticket prices.

And that also means flexibility, as it allows music lovers to select from any of the upcoming concerts through January 2009.And any additional tickets can be purchased for only $15 each. But don’t wait until Wednesday, because the offer is only valid while quantities last.


“Each season, the Honolulu Symphony strives to increase the reach of its enrichment programs and concert experiences to more people - from families to young people to seniors,“says Tom Gulick, executive director, Honolulu Symphony.“This fall, many community members are watching spending carefully. The ‘3 For $45’ offering makes going to the symphony a wallet-friendly option for everyone who wants to experience world-class entertainment without the hefty price tag.”

To take advantage of the “3 For $45” special, call the Symphony Box Office at 792-2000 (weekdays) or 524-0815 ext. 245 (evenings).
