Online reservations open August 2, 2021, for all group sizes (public schools, private schools, homeschools and individuals). All Groups who make a reservation will receive a link to the concert in October 2021. The concert will be available for schools to access as many times as needed for your classes to view for one month’s time.
Please confirm your group numbers before making a reservation. Groups of less than 50 will receive a link to pay online when your reservation is made and no exchanges or refunds are offered for these virtual tickets, unless the KSO has to cancel the performance.
Virtual tickets are $4.00 for each student and adult, but all adults are free after 10 paying students. Virtual tickets are required for children ages 2 and up.
Virtual Young People’s Concerts are eligible for the Student Ticket Subsidy (STS) Program: The Student Ticket Subsidy (STS) grant program provides funds for artist fees, tickets, and transportation for students from Tennessee public schools to experience a broad variety of cultural opportunities, arts disciplines, and artists.
Virtual/Remote Projects Eligible for STS Funding: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the TN Arts Commission is allowing applicant schools to carry out virtual projects, activities, and performances with artists and organizations on the Teaching Artist Roster through the STS grant program during the 2020-2021 academic year. The virtual projects, activities, and performances must include an interactive and/or hands-on component, such as a Q&A session with a musician (see Meet the Musicians) following a recorded or streamed viewing of a performance or a guided hands-on visual arts lesson completed remotely. To search for artists and organizations offering virtual/remote options, select “Virtual” on the right-hand side in the roster filter and look for sample programs that have “Available Virtually” in the sample program title.
Please note that you must register in the Tennessee Arts Commission Online Grants System before you can submit a grant (A registration may take between 1-7 days to be approved. Please register prior to any grant opening or deadline to avoid missing a potential funding opportunity). For more information, visit the Tennessee Arts Commission Online Grants System.
Please note that the eGrant application for Student Ticket Subsidy opens August 12, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.
