Steamboat briefs: Free tickets now required for Seminars at Steamboat

— Because the attendance at the first two Seminars at Steamboat this summer exceeded expectations and seating at the Strings Music Pavilion, free tickets now are required.

The tickets will be distributed at the Pavilion after 3:30 the day of each seminar. Tickets are required for entry. Doors open at 4:15, and when seating capacity (569) is filled, the doors will be closed. There will be no standing.

Friends of the Seminars — those who contribute $100 or more — can reserve as many as four tickets by e-mailing by Tuesday afternoon before the

Thursday seminar. Those tickets can be picked up at the Pavilion the afternoon of the seminar. The next seminar is at 5 p.m. Thursday and features Paul Peterson talking about Saving the American School.
