Changes to the the 2009/2010 Seattle Symphony subscription season

A thank-you to commenter Greg for pointing it out that the Seattle Symphony made changes to their UBS Masterworks 13 series after the brochures were printed. I compared my printed brochure against the online one and updated the 2009/2010 Seattle Symphony subscription season at a glance accordingly. They deleted five concerts and added six, so the Masterworks 13 series actually has 14 concerts. They probably kept the name for backward compatibility.

    I hate to break this to you Raymond but not everybody is as committed to backwards compatibility as you are…

    Way to kill a joke, Motti. Congrats.

    Actually, "backwards compatibility" is a good reason.

    Say you have the brochure, and didn;t realize they changed the packages around. You go tp]o the booth and ask for "Masterworks 13 package", like the brochure says. If the clerk says no, it’s Masterworks 14, then some people get snippy or snarky, thinking someone’s pulling the old bait-and-switch.

    Rather than waste time with arguments on how the brochure is outdated, and the price is the same, blah blah blah, the organizers feel it’s just easier to call it what people expect.

    "it’s just easier to call it what people expect."

    and then switch :)

    Whatever the package name, if the content has changed then the clerks should really take the time to detail what did change.

    The package naming is accessory, and can be explained by already printed cards etc. People won’t care about *that*.
