No music to follow along and sing, too hot inside, the single singers were not good, choir was good, in general - not a good night.

Had a lovely time warbling along with the SD Public Library Chorus and SD City Ballet Orchestra! Beautiful venue with superb acoustics! Would definitely recommend!

It was fun, it was great music, fantastic acoustics, a beautiful venue and lovely people - the only thing that would have made it better, would have been a full house of people singing the chorus parts, and scores for the audience/participants (...continued

Goldstar showed that there was only one ticket left in the mezzanine when I purchased. So I purchased and went by myself (because there was only one ticket available) The mezzanine was almost empty for the performance, with plenty of seats...continued

Seats were pretty bad was able to convince house manager to let us move to back row center. I am going to be very careful ordering theater seats, concerts, etc through Goldstar because the seats are less than good..fine balance between value/not...continued

The best part was the chorus, which sang beautifully and was amplified marvelously by the excellent acoustics of the theater (built in 1912, before microphones were around to help out). The soloists were very talented, but weren't loud enough (we...continued

I dislike being negative, but I'm glad I only paid $10 per ticket.

This was supposed to be a sing-along version of Handel's Messiah. Unfortunately there were no scores available. The conductor told us there had been a miscommunication. The performance was amateurish, but spirited. Unfortunately, most people did...continued

Delightful evening at the Spreckels Theater. Casual, with the necessary formality of a performance, heartfelt, with enthusiastic audience participation! Kudos on the inaugural event. Hope to be there with my Mom again next year!

This was HORRIBLE! I am contacting the ballet to see if I can get a refund. It was billed as a singalong -- that's the whole purpose. They said they'd have scores available to rent -- you CAN NOT do a sing along of this complex music without one....continued
