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!

Apparently there is a $30 per tickets even if you drive to the box office and purchase tickets on-site. Maybe I'm old but I have never encountered a venue where you could not save the fees by purchasing tickets at the box office instead 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!
