The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is offering tickets for nine upcoming concerts at prices not seen in a long time.

Anyone can get this deeply discounted rate as long as they purchase their tickets on March 13.

The DSO is offering this promotion to recognize 313 Day, which celebrates the City of Detroit and its famous area code.

"What is great about the concerts that we're offering for this promotion is that it's across all of our different concert series so you have many different types of music," said Matt Carlson, Senior Director of Communications for the DSO.

He said that includes jazz, classical, pop and family concerts.

"We really do hope that those who've been curious, but haven't come yet for whatever reason, are tempted by this," Carlson said.

The concerts eligible for the 313 promotion are:

· CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE’S NEW JAWN: March 24 at 8 p.m. – Paradise Jazz Series
· HADELICH & STRAVINSKY: April 27 at 7:30 p.m., April 28 at 10:45 a.m., April 29 at 8 p.m. – PVS Classical Series
