Parking is NOT free for shows at the Levine School of Music, but is free for the Strathmore. Confusing and disappointing.

Leave home early, even if you live close. At this time of year and time of evening, Rockville Pike and other roads are usually bumper-to-bumper, plus the line to get into the parking lot (from Rockville Pike onto Tuckerman Lane, (vs. where you enter for the Mansion, despite the posted road sign), is one lane, also bumper to bumper. Parking is free but another challenge still lies ahead with long waits for elevators in the parking garage, transversing the long, elevated corrider between the parking lot and the venue, and additional elevators with long lines inside the venue, which take you to the level of your assigned seats (there is an elevator operator checking tickets and telling individuals if they're on the correct elevator, etc.). If you're not familiar with this whole scenario, best to leave a trail of breadcrumbs from your parking space to your seat, assuming there are no birds in sight. : \

The show was OK, strings were nice, but the vocals and mix were- generally- off. A couple of the singers were kind of pitchy, and the overall sound was somewhat garbled. ("Every sound board in the world is run by a rock-and-roll drummer" is the...continued
