UGA’s Performing Arts Center has set yet another subscription sales record, heralding a successful start to the center’s 10th anniversary season. For the current 2005-2006 season, subscriptions for the Dance Festival have hit an all-time high, with a 26 percent increase over the previous season. Likewise, Music Series II, which showcases classical music, has experienced a 27 percent jump in subscriptions from last year, giving that series one of the largest single-year increases in the past 10 years.
To date, the Performing Arts Center’s total subscriptions stand at 2,431, including student pass holders. Student passes will continue to be sold throughout the season, so projections are that the subscription total will exceed the 2,500 mark, resulting in one of the highest season ticket sales totals in the Performing Arts Center’s history.
“At a time when performing arts subscriptions are declining nationwide, we are indeed gratified by the strong show of support for our programming, especially in this, our tenth anniversary season,” says Timothy A. Bartholow, Performing Arts Center director.
The UGA Performing Arts Center’s 2005-2006 10th anniversary season runs through April 2006.
