They served reasonably priced catered dinners in the hall before the performance. Looked good.

Zellerbach Hall is a very pleasant setting. It is well designed so that even an inexpensive GS seat in the balcony felt like a box. Nice place.
And yet the concert left this listener cold. A good program. The Dean piece was no revelation but it...continued

First time i saw/heard the Berkeley Symphony with Joana C at its helm.
She is incredibly expressive in her gestures and the Symphony reacted accordingly. Great team!
I am planning on buying tickets for the other 2 programs of the season

About the Ticket Supplier: Berkeley Symphony

Known as "the Bay Area's most adventurous orchestra" (Contra Costa Times), Berkeley Symphony is "perpetually innovative" and "as musically ambitious as it gets" (San Francisco Magazine). Berkeley Symphony is known both for its presentations of major new works for orchestra, as well as for its fresh interpretations of the classic European traditions. The result is "a cutting-edge repertory mix, mingling the old and the new as few other orchestras do." (San Jose Mercury News) Kent Nagano established this tradition of inventive music-making during his 30-year tenure as Music Director, now to be continued under the direction of 32-year-old Lisbon native Joana Carneiro.
