Symphony Discounts

Kay Kukich tells us that she is able to get group rates for tickets to both the classical and pops concerts presented by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.  The pops concerts are on a Sunday afternoon and the price is $35, well below the normal price.  Classical
tickets are a bit more expensive as the seats are in the orchestra section of Heinz Hall.  If you are interested, please contact Kay.

The PARC Program Committee has been asked about promoting PARC member participation in group tours that have not been organized by the PARC Program Committee. 
An example is the National Parks trip, organized by a PARC member, where anyone can participate and groups are welcome.  While such trips will not be sponsored by PARC, we have developed the following guidelines to permit ‘advertising’ a specific trip in the PARC newsletter and on the web site.  These are:

    1. the trip must be organized by a PARC member or an Alcoa employee,
    2. that person must participate in the trip, and
    3. if there are any trip rebates, including group discounts and free trips for having a certain number of attendees, these must be equally shared by all participants.
