Welcome at the Symphony
After being INCREDIBLY SCARED of attending a Cincinnati Symphony performance due to Monetary, Class Elitism, my Mental Wellness Mentor (a Clinical Psych) spoke the most respectful words I've ever heard, about such matters: Knowing I've got a great deal of Classical Music knowledge, he said, "Certainly the symphony needs the money the rich patrons bring in, but they need people with your knowledge of it, too... and I'd rather be Elite like you THAN THE OTHERS".
Those words convinced me to keep going back... And Saturday night, not only was the performance allegedly Sold Out, someone in the gift shop actually complimented me on my (some real, some fake) pieces of Ruby Jewelry...
Thankfully, the Cincinnati Symphony gets BOTH types of Elitism in my mentor: A subscription holder, he has more money than I, but also has a great deal of Classical Music knowledge, enough to know there's a place EVERYONE will find welcome, at any of the CSO performances.
