Win tickets to the Fresno Philharmonic

UPDATE 10/25: Congratulations to our winners: Amy Querin, Nicolas Barajas, Kathy Juarez, Lee Garcia and Derek Fridolfs. Hope y’all enjoy the concert.

ORIGINAL ENTRY: Wow. I get to give away FIVE pairs of tickets to the Fresno Philharmonic’s upcoming Saturday concert at the Saroyan Theatre featuring young violin sensation Chad Hoopes. I’m hoping to feature an interview with Hoopes later this week, but in the meantime you can read a little about the concert in my Sunday Spotlight column [first item].

These are all really nice tickets, with the pairs ranging from Rows A through N of the orchestra section.

The concert is 8 p.m. Saturday. To enter our giveaway, leave a comment on this post. I’ll pick five winners at random who each will receive two tickets. Deadline is 5 p.m. Tuesday. If you enter, please remember to check your email, because that’s how I’ll be notifying winners. These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to be able to come down to The Bee’s front lobby during business hours by 5 p.m. Friday to pick them up.
