If the tickets are priced right we love to catch the symphony a few times each year. Always amazing to see these shows.

I go only for the classical music concerts, so this review does not apply to pop concerts or the "Lighter Classics" series. The orchestra is consistently Inconsistent. They can be very good one evening, and less than ho-hum the next. They have actually been able...More
