Thanks for helping keep classical music down to earth

Alli Marshall's article Jan. 23 article, "Classical Music (No Tuxedo Required)," was a great survey of some of the wonderful classical musical opportunities in Asheville. She makes us aware that besides the Asheville Symphony, Asheville Bravo Concerts and Asheville Lyric Opera, this town is resplendent with classical musicians and the folks who love to listen to them in all kinds of venues, from the concert hall to college recital rooms to churches. Who knows, maybe an adventurous entrepreneur will try a classical concert with a sound and light show at the Orange Peel!

Your headline, "No Tuxedo Required," suggests you have to dress up and spend a lot of money to come to the Asheville Symphony. Not true: For every concert, there's a student rush 15 minutes before the show, with tickets costing only $6. Bring a student I.D. And definitely don't bring a tuxedo or fancy clothes. Come as you are!
