Ragtime posterFor the first time and a few years in the making, subscriptions for the Lively Arts’ Ovations! series are now available online. Indiana’s premier series of touring performing artists, the series offers a dozen events, including Broadway shows, classical music, jazz and folk, modern dance, theater, ballet, and more.

It has been the hope for several seasons that in addition to single tickets sold online, patrons would have the convenience of ordering subscriptions online. By going online, or on the Lively Arts Tickets or directly to the Lively Arts website and clicking on Tickets Available Now, patrons can purchase the full 12 events of the Ovations! series.

In addition to other benefits, subscribers save at least 15 percent off the single-ticket price, totaling as much as $65 per subscription and the best seats possible.

To accommodate people wishing to subscribe online, the deadline for ordering has been extended to September 18, 2015. Although tickets for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra go on sale before that on Tuesday, August 25, seats will be put aside for subscribers, assuring them the best seats.

The fall 2015 Ovations! lineup includes the always-popular appearance of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on September 30, L.A. Theatre Works’ radio play offering of Dracula on October 8, the Chicago Afro-Latin Jazz Ensemble on October 21, male a capella vocal ensemble Cantus on November 7, and Ragtime: The Musical on November 19.

The 2016 spring semester continues with the all-female horn quartet Genghis Barbie on January 23, Japanese taiko group Drum TAO on February 9, contemporary dance company RIOULT Dance NY on February 23, the Broadway hit Mamma Mia! on March 2, Moscow Festival Ballet performing Swan Lake on March 28, folk music trio American Tapestry on April 14, and Steinway concert pianist Arnaldo Cohen on April 26.

Patrons wishing to purchase the Totally Everything package or the Flex Pak will still need to order those plans through an order form. The form is available online, or you can have one sent by calling 724-357-2787 (ARTS) or e-mailing lively-arts@iup.edu.

The Totally Everything package includes the Ovations! series plus the College of Fine Arts’ Theater-by-the-Grove, Dance Theater, Music Theater, and Sound Choices series. The Flex Pak allows you to pick eight or more events from the 23 offered through the Lively Arts’ various series.

The Ovations! series is funded, in part, by the IUP Student Cooperative Association. It is additionally funded by various grants, business sponsors, and individual contributors to the Premiere Club. The series is a program of the Lively Arts through the College of Fine Arts.
