Home Arts-Entertainment Things to do REICHHOLD SEASON TICKETS AVAILABLE AUG. 6



June 29, 2001- Tickets for the Reichhold Center for the Arts 2001-02 season will go on sale Aug. 6.
The season at the theater on the University of the Virgin Islands St. Thomas campus opens on Oct. 13 with a concert by the contemporary jazz group Spyro Gyra. It will be followed by the third annual visit of the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra, a Birch Forum co-production, on Nov. 3; the "queen of salsa," Celia Cruz, on Jan. 26; Ballet Concierto de Puerto Rico, on Feb. 23; a reggae concert to be announced, in March; and the eighth annual STARfest local talent revue, on May 11/12 and 19/20.
The Reichhold offers two types of discounted subscription packages. The Foundation Series, for all six presentations, is $247 for covered seating and $160 in the open air, a savings of 10 percent off individual ticket prices. The "Create-Your-Own" Series allows patrons to choose any four or five performances and get 5 percent off the individual ticket prices.
In addition to discounted tickets, season subscribers will get invitations to meet-the-artist receptions. "This year, we are throwing two grand bashes, one for Spyro Gyra, who will be celebrating their 25th anniversary in music, and the other for Latin music queen Celia Cruz," Reichhold director David Edgecombe said. Only Reichhold subscribers and donors will be invited to these events, he said.
