Wonderful presentation, great added value from the video and really good humor from Tovey. The way he talks about the music pieces adds understanding and enjoyment to the listening experience.

Concert was excellent. There's never a bad seat in Avery Fisher Hall. It seemed most of the tickets were sold via "discount" so the will call line was impossible! People were cutting the line like crazy. The box office staff were very good. I...continued

I attended the New York Philharmonic "Planets" concert and movie on Sunday afternoon, 7/7/13. Goldstar provided 2nd tier side box seats. Some people criticize the acoustics at Avery Fisher Hall but, in my opinion, many areas of the Hall are...continued

First time watching NY Phil and loved it! Never knew conductors were so funny...Bramwell Tovey had everyone lol. Except for the b*tch that told my mom and I to stop talking (some people need translating), I loved the experience! The NASA footage...continued

The concert was quite nice, the NY Phil's are beautiful orchestra and the dirigent was very entertaining. However, a bit disappointing were two facts: first, the planet picture show only took place during the 2nd part of the performance and the...continued

Great music, however the projection screen was really amateurish. You would think that Lincoln Center would have a better screen to project onto.

I was disapointed. The screen was not very big; somehow I thought the NASA photos would be huge, or on the ceilling, and I thought that the conductor's chatter between pieces was juevenile. I kept wondering if I had accidentaly ended up at a...continued

This sold out event was comprised of music, overhead HD videos, a choir, and a conductor, Bramwell Tovey whose comedic timing was impeccable and the icing on the cake. Not only did I enjoy this concert, but I also learned information about the...continued
