Tickets now needed for Sept. 29 Yo-Yo Ma lecture at DePauw

Saturday, September 3, 2011

In an effort to ensure DePauw students, faculty and staff, and Greencastle community members have priority access, tickets will be required for admission to the Sept. 29 Yo-Yo Ma lecture at DePauw University.

This event had been previously announced as open to all on a first-come, first-served basis. The lecture ticket availability is a response to overwhelming demand for Yo-Yo Ma's Sept. 30 concert (which sold out almost immediately).

Yo-Yo Ma will be the featured artist of "DePauw Discourse 2011: Empowering Society Through the Arts" Sept. 29-Oct. 1. Joined by DePauw alumni and other distinguished guests, Yo-Yo Ma will lead a celebration of the arts while exploring their community role in sparking creativity, innovation, self-expression and dialogue.

The lecture, "Reflections on a Life in Music: An Evening with Yo-Yo Ma," is set for 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 in Kresge Auditorium in the Green Center for the Performing Arts (605 S. College Ave.).

A limited number of tickets for the lecture will be available as follows:

-- DePauw students may pick up one ticket on Sept. 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (or until supplies are depleted) in the School of Music office (Green Center, room 1124).

-- Faculty and staff can pick up tickets from noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 6 (or when allotment is gone) in the School of Music office; limit two per person.

-- General admission tickets will be available at the Green Center box office (noon to 4 p.m.) for two days, Sept. 7-8, or until the supply is depleted; limit two per person. No phone or e-mail orders will be taken.

Individuals with questions or who need special accommodations may call 658-4827.

Those who have registered for DePauw Discourse already have tickets for the Yo-Yo Ma lecture and concert. Registration for Discourse is now closed.

Currently the Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Yo-Yo Ma is a multiple Grammy Award-winning cellist. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Feb. 15, 2011.

"Depauw students, faculty and staff, and Greencastle community members.."

That pretty much includes everyone in the area. LMAO.

I'm sure that many people in the outlying communities such as Bloomington and Terre Haute (for example) would also have jumped at the chance to see Yo Yo Ma in person. Therefore, I'm glad the tickets were restricted to those in closest proximity to DePauw, and in the order of preference that was stated. My only regret is that I missed the chance to get my own ticket - I didn't realize the deadline had already passed!
