LB Symphony Orchestra targets younger generation of music lovers with its Balcony Club

The Long Beach Symphony Orchestra’s (LBSO) is kicking off its new year with the Balcony Club, which offers drink specials and affordable pricing.
The Balcony Club is a new take on the classics to inspire and attract a younger generation of concert-goers, with a sociable set-up, bar, and drink specials to create a casual and friendly environment that’s ideal for networking and socializing. Located at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, the Terrace Theater’s balcony oversees the stage of talent and musical vibrations.
“Going to a classics concert doesn’t have to be a formal or expensive affair,” said Rick Berry, LBSO director of marketing. “The Balcony Club is a great way for people to check out our orchestra without some of the barriers that people may have perceived in the past. The price is right, and the atmosphere is casual and friendly. Plus, the music actually sounds best from the Balcony.”
The LBSO Balcony Club will continue on Saturday, Jan. 12, when music director Enrique Arturo Diemecke will conduct Rossini’s Barber of Seville: Overture, Saint-Saëns‘ Violin Concerto No. 3 featuring Elmar Oliveira, and Debussy‘s Nocturnes and La Mer.
Tickets to the Balcony Club are $20 (or two tickets for $35), compared to tickets that are traditionally $65 to $89 per person. Balcony Club tickets for the season are available at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center Box Office or by calling the LBSO Box Office at (562) 436-3203, ext. 1.
