A beautiful venue for any ocassion, but since my wife had been wanting to go to this event for years I decided to surprise her. We had very good seats through Goldstar(back Orchestra)and the place was almost filled. But trying to follow along with the score(an additional $10.00)when you haven't sung in a choir for over 34 years can be quite a challenge. And this is not a sing-along with the entire L.A. Chorale, no-no, for you the audience truly are the none solo chorus.
There were four soloists from the chorale when needed, and for the most part I'd rank their vocal talents from highly acceptable, to needs more work on clarity and projection. But a fun outing in the long run. You might want to even consider staying seated; yes you stand a great deal, and just listen to the many other patrons around you that obviously have done this before, or know their music very well. But when it comes to the Hallelujah Chorus, you will definitely want to join-in; the goosebumps are infectious.

Goldstar contacted the venue to provide us with easily accessible seats as one of us had problems walking. We had great seats. There is a separate parking lot at the Disney Concert Hall. We didn't have to walk outside to go into the building. The garden is open to visitors prior to performance as is the cafe that offers a selection of wonderful meals or snacks( lamb/mashed potatoes etc. about $23.00/ my salad bar plate (mostly lettuce and a bit of tuna) was $13.95 (served on plastic plate). Expensive, I thought, but we enjoyed the food and setting. The last thing I'll mention is that there is a seating area behind the orchestra and those seated there would see the backs of the musicians. Very festive activity. A Christmas must one time or another!

I was a messiah sing along virgin, and also a shower singer, so it did not occur to me to purchase the score, which would have made participation easier....having said that, the experience was wonderful in Disney Hall and I think I will go again next year, score in hand.....

A fantastic and unique evening out. The venue is sublime, the orchestra and the soloists were wonderful. Do it! You know you want to.
