A super evening out. I was taken aback by the caliber of the musicians. This was literally a super star team of concert masters from the finest orchestras in the country. You could really hear and see the difference with the superb virtuosity displayed in each performance.
I was surprised that each piece was performed without a conductor. This did not detract at all from the performance, a testimony to the skills of the musicians. There were interruptions from the audience,applause between movements, cell phones and other noises which the musicians brushed off and even nodded their amusement. The entire evening was a joy to behold and I can not think of a better performance that I witnessed since moving here to San Diego.

Our first time to the Balboa Theater and it was beautiful. Such a lovely restoration. The acoustics were good and the orchestra used them to perfection. We happily met an old friend there we hadn't seen in years. Wonderful evening!
