Attending a Veteran's Day musical performance made for young children with my Mother and wife's nephews we were all pleasantly surprised by how beautifully done everything was not only during the show but in the building as well. Being relatively new compared to most opera...More

Our first visit- and won’t be our last. Such a great, clean, beautiful symphony hall. They don’t get any better than this. Acoustics were wonderful. Ushers all very helpful. If you have a chance to see any show here - do it!

I never sat in those seats, but since the acoustics in the other areas is impeccable, I would bet it is great there, too. It would be almost like the sound sitting in the orchestra playing and you get to see every move of... More

Looking for suggestions, ideas on clothing options appropriate for the symphony. Taking into consideration the season and style of music to be performed. Going to see the music of Prince, starring Marshall Charloff. It is scheduled for November 8th. This will be my first time to attending a symphony hall and I want to make sure that I'm not under dressed. The only dress I own is a black knee length. I've worn it once. To my husband's funeral. Don't think I will ever wear it again. So, I'm thinking about skinny jeans or maybe palazzo pants. I love beautiful clothes but, rarely buy them because I spend most of the time in work clothes. The tickets are a special treat to myself and who knows how long it will be before I do something like this again. If anyone has any suggestions please help this old lady out!
