I’m always watching for great deals on things to do in Spokane for our Travel-Spokane.com readers. The Spokane Symphony’s Club Maestro is the best deal I’ve seen all year for live shows. If you are age 21–35, you can sign up for a free Club Maestro membership, which entitles you to purchase up to two $15 tickets for any Classics, Casual Classics, and other specially offered concerts. Ticket prices vary, but for $15, you can score seats that cost up to $44 regular price. The Spokane Symphony also offers special pre- and post-show events throughout the season for Club Maestro members.
Attending a symphony concert is a great date idea and also an excellent way to treat yourself and just chill out for the evening listening to some live, high quality music. You can dress up or down, just as you please; some people go in blue jeans, while others find the symphony a great reason to dress to the nines. Club Maestro members can buy up to two $15 tickets for each concert, and there are no age requirements for the guest, so members can treat a parent, older friend, or anyone they like for just $15.
It’s easy to sign up—I just emailed my information to email@example.com with “Club Maestro” on the subject line, but you can also mail your information to or just stop by the box office of the gorgeous, historic Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, 1001 W. Sprague Ave. in downtown Spokane. To join, you must provide your name, mailing address, email address, and a copy of your ID that shows your date of birth (I just scanned mine and sent a jpeg).
There are five Classics concerts and two Casual Classics concerts left for the 2011–2012 Spokane Symphony season. Featured composers include Mozart, Schubert, Gioachino Rossini (with William Tell Overture, the Lone Ranger theme), Beethoven, Stravinsky, Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Strauss, and more. Several of the concerts will feature outstanding guest artists from all over. Club Maestro is a great opportunity to broaden your musical knowledge, get a jump-start on New Year’s resolutions to attend more cultural events, or just learn more about some of history’s greatest musical composers for very little cash.
