Tickets for "An Evening with Yo-Yo Ma" and the Louisville Orchestra went on sale to the public this morning at 10 a.m. Two hours later, they were all gone. The concert is slated for Oct. 30 at the Kentucky Center.

According to a release, Louisville Orchestra subscribers have been "gobbling up the majority of Yo-Yo Ma tickets which have been on sale exclusively to them for months." Earlier this week, there were limited pre-sales to Fund for the Arts members, Kentucky Center for the Arts patrons, and WUOL members. Carla Givan Motes, the orchestra's director of patron services and ticket operations, says two weeks ago the concert was already at 60 percent capacity. By Wednesday evening, there were only about 230 seats left. "We knew today was going to go quickly," she says.

One of the greatest cellists of our time, Ma has produced more than 90 albums and won 18 Grammy Awards.
