ORLANDO PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA OFFERS COMPLIMENTARY TICKETS TO FURLOUGHED FEDERAL EMPLOYEES
Arts community offers respite as shutdown stretches into its fourth week
The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra is offering complimentary tickets for select performances to all furloughed federal employees affected by the government shutdown. “Many federal employees in Central Florida are impacted by the furlough and the Philharmonic wishes to offer them the opportunity to enjoy music with friends and family during a challenging time” said Executive Director Christopher Barton. “Sharing the joy of live music when members of our community need it most is central to mission of the Orlando Philharmonic. We hope all those affected by the shutdown feel the support from their local arts community and are able to return to their work soon.
