Late change in whether to charge for event explains confusion
Yavapai Community College is sponsoring one of those rare concerts on the Verde campus on Friday, August 22 at 7 p.m. at the Maybery Pavilion with the T.S. Monk Jr. Jazz Trio. In a Community College flyer tickets for the concert were advertised at $20 and $10 dollars. In an advertisement in the Sunday, August 17 Verde Independent, readers were urged to go to www.ycpac.com for tickets. Once there, you learn the tickets are FREE. However, nothing in the newspaper advertisement suggests they are free. An email sent by the College on Saturday, August 16 to a number of Verde residents informed them that the concert is free.
Reliable sources say that the decision was made Friday afternoon, August 15 to change the concert from one with paid tickets to a free event. Therefore, the confusing print advertising. We have been assured that the event is FREE to the public on the Verde campus.
However, if you want to see the trio a day earlier (August 21), they will perform at 7:30 at the Performing Arts Center on the Prescott campus. Tickets for the performance in Prescott are $25 and $48 dollars per seat.
