“We knew that our pre-season ticket sales would be strong, but were surprised to sell-out these concerts so early,” said Christine Kasten, Executive Director. “We are especially thrilled to welcome so many new people to The Venice Symphony this season. It says something about the appeal of our music director Troy Quinn’s programming, and the excitement surrounding our orchestra.”
