Not exactly your style?
Cinderella or Cinderfella,
who's to know?
The SSO's April 1
is not about elegance and social graces,
it's about generosity and love of great music, delivered to your concert hall.
So when you buy your tickets to the
2019 Phantom Ball, you do so knowing you won't have to dress up and wear those shoes that pinch and go out in the rain (or snow even!). And besides that, it's on a Monday night!!
No, you buy your tickets and then forget all about the Ball. Or think about it if you like, but whatever you do, DON'T GO.
Because, of course, the Ball is mythical, a grand illusion that gets you thinking about wonderful music, the kind that you're supporting with your gift (through your purchase of "tickets") to the Stratford Symphony Orchestra.
Please buy your tickets soon. The last day of sales is April 1 (the day of the Ball, remember?). See details below.
But first a word from our delightful and generous Phantom Ball ambassadors, Kelly Walker and Ray Harsant, angels for our cause:
"We live in a community that has taken on a mission of exploring imagination through the arts. This venture benefits our community and shares with the greater community beyond Stratford the gifts we encourage here.
"Our symphony opens hearts and minds as sounds and rhythms penetrate to the core of the human condition. This encourages life, community and hope.
"We ask you to contribute financially to this venture. This group of musicians helps us to become united in a celebration of the best of what humans have to celebrate from the past, in the present and into the future. Corita Kent, an artist and mystic, says 'to celebrate is to say YEA to who we are in a ceremonial way.' Our symphony helps us do that with dignity, grace and wonder.
Kelly and Ray
