The Sudbury Symphony Orchestra

Opens Single Ticket Sales to Public

Single Tickets to all SSO Concerts & Special Presentations now Available


Sudbury, ON August 1, 2014: After months of waiting patiently, music lovers were lined up outside the doors of the Sudbury Symphony office at 9am on Friday, determined to be the first to have their choice of seats for the Orchestra’s 39th season.

“We’ve never seen anything like this,” Executive Director Dawn Cattapan stated. “Our subscribers have been seated and those who wish to attend one or two concerts know the best seats go first. But to have patrons lined up outside our doors at 9am is a first.”

Subscriptions for the Orchestra’s 6-concert season went on sale in March with subscribers getting first access to seats for Les Miserables: In Concert, a 3-night co-production between the SSO and YES Theatre. Starting today, the general public can now get tickets for this unique event, sure to be one of the premiere cultural events of the year for Sudbury.

In addition to the Special Presentation, tickets were also in high-demand for the Orchestra’s season opener on October 18, Swinging Sixties, conducted by legendary Canadian conductor, composer and arranger Howard Cable and featuring Grand Bend crooner Michael Vanhevel.

“Our online system allows you to pick the concert and number of seats you want, as well as let us know if you have a preference on where to sit (floor/balcony),” Cattapan advised on how to avoid the lines and busy signals that have tied up the SSO’s phones today.

Tickets for the Sudbury Symphony’s 6-concert season start at $13 for those 29-and-under, with all other tickets starting at $27. The Orchestra also has a Christmas Matinée for families beginning at $5 a ticket, and Special Presentations starting at $25. To order tickets, please call 705.673.1280, or visit

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
