Downtown bargain: combine Shreveport Symphony Orchestra concert and Robinson Film Center Gala tickets on Sat, May 3 and synergize

For arts lovers the decision to go to the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra's concert, Ocular Odyssey, or to attend the gala that inaugurates the Robinson Film Center has seemed an either-or situation.

Both take place Sat, May 3.

But the marketeers at the SSO and RFC have created an acquisition and merger ticket: subscribers or single ticket purchasers to the SSO concert may purchase a half-price ticket to the RFC Gala, valid for post-concert admission to the RFC (after 9 pm).

My top hat is being doffed to Scott Green and John Grindley, the Saturday night chefs.
