Another epic summer night at the bowl! We brought our own picnic to supplement the complimentary wine and cheese basket, which was necessary to feed 3 people, but, boy, did we feast in our box seats! I thoroughly enjoy Orff's Carmina Burana, but...continued

Excellent box seats! Glad to get the chance to experience the bowl from a box. The wine & cheese were a nice supplement to our picnic that we brought. Glad we brought wine glasses and crackers! All in all it was a truly incredible evening.

This was a great deal. A summer evening at the Bowl is a quintessential So Cal event and this was a perfect example of it. In addition to the awesome terrace box, they provided a decent bottle of wine and a cheese basket. The LA Phil and Master...continued

It's hard to have a bad time at the Hollywood Bowl. Nice warm evening, spectacular sunset, and lovely music. The Mendelssohn was a nice unexpected surprise; familiar beautiful music. Carmina Burana was fun and well done and powerful. Fortuna...continued
