I enjoyed myself especially aa the evening started to break in. What lovely sounds. it was so wonderful to be there and even though the stars did not show, my imagination was working "wild".
Did not have to have any thing to enjoy but the beautiful music.

it was a nice night, good music food and friends. a good way just to relax and listen to music. if it hadn't been cloudy it would have been perfect. The hollywood bowl is truely a great venue. Even with the cheap seats its a good show. ;)
