We went to the concert featuring Michael W. Smith. It was very nice and festive. We loved hearing MWS and the ASO. We had great seats and were very comfortable. Really need to improve the bathroom situation for the women.

Having visited ASO on Friday evening, we did not encounter traffic and arrived early. All personnel were polite and helpful. The theater was filled and the music was fantastic. A wonderful performance and it highlighted Chris Botti. They are always superb.
