This Friday hails the start of the 2010-11 season for the Astoria Music Society.  The Astoria Music Society (AMS) includes the Astoria Symphony and the Lost Dog New Music Ensemble.  This year the orchstra will be working with the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts’ Orchestra and Choir, as well as the newly formed Astoria Symphonic Choir.

Here’s a summary of AMS’s upcoming season:

  • October 1, 2010: Astoria Symphony: Magic of the Cinema (featuring the FSSA Orchestra)
  • November 4 & 6, 2010: Lost Dog New Music Ensemble
  • December 11, 2010: Astoria Symphony: Handel’s Messiah (featuring the FSSA Choir)
  • March 12, 2011: Astoria Symphony: Romantic Masterpieces
  • April 28 & 30, 2011: Lost Dog New Music Ensemble
  • May 8, 2011: Astoria Symphonic Choir: Haydn Fest! (featuring the Astoria Symphonic Choir)

This year marks their 8th season.  Performances will feature movie music, great choral works, world premieres, classical masterpieces, and much more. Very exciting to have so much variety in store!

They are offering a great ticket deal right now when you buy an AMS season pass! An AMS Complete Pass give you 4 Astoria Symphony concerts & 2 Lost Dog Concerts for only $100. An Astoria Symphony Pass gives you 4 Astoria Symphony concerts for only $60!

Now, what will you get along with your season pass? You’ll receive benefits like preferred seating at all events, invitations to special private events, and passes include all pre-concert lectures and post-concert receptions with the musicians.  Sounds like a deal to me. You can buy your passes here.

If a season pass is not likely to be in your future, you can buy individual tickets to concerts. According to the website:

Full-priced tickets to individual concerts cost $20 ($15 for students & senior citizens 65 & older, free for kids 12 & under). Tickets can be purchased at the door starting one hour before the concert, or online. To buy individual tickets online, visit our concert calendar and click on the concert you’d like to attend.

As you can see from the schedule, the first concert is this Friday, October 1. More on that on Monday.
