The seats obtained through Goldstar were, without question, the best in the house. We were in the center of the third row in the Orchestra. How could we miss? The concert was wonderful... once it began. There were several pre-concert things that were not thrilling and there were some unexpected delays in starting, but when Ms. Graves hit the stage, it was the kind of experience we dream of...great singing, great choice of music, great sound and a fantastic view of the artist and her talented accompanist, thanks to the great seats. If there was a negative, it would be the audience applauding at the wrong times but then, they were appreciative so that can be forgiven.
