Overall, it was an enjoyable event for my wife and I. Balboa theatre was a bit more intimate than I expected, which was nice. Our seats through Goldstar ended up being about 5 rows under the overhang of the balcony, close to center. Not bad at all for the price.
But the sound seemed a bit... off. Not sure if it was the acoustics of the theatre, the talent of some of the musicians, or the direction of the conductor. In the second piece (with just three featured performers), the piano at times seemed to overwhelm the clarinet and cello... and the cello was almost muted at times. Didn't mesh acoustically very. And the third piece, with the full orchestra, was supposed to be a fun piece with shotguns firing and hunting dogs barking. But the way the conductor chose to use the them (recordings) was strange and didn't even sound even close to real guns.
The other two pieces were enjoyable, if not spectacular, but considering it was a special event created of people that rarely played together, understandable.
