The Symphony was wonderful but we all wished that the Romeros had played a bit longer. We were in row F, about 6 rows back with a great view. If you were seated in the back, you heard distracting noise from oxygen machines. Many elderly and disabled go to the matinees so there is a lot of coughing, sneezing (and then saying 'Excuse me!). Perhaps complimentary cough drops could be handed out. The ushers handed out next season's programs although they had some for the day's program.

The ROMEROS were breathtaking to hear live. As a music fan all my life, I put this performance at the top of my list of all time best listening. How fortunate to have witnessed "the best ever" in my lifetime of musical treats. Bravo!

The San Diego Symphony offers a wide range of concert experiences and performs over 100 concerts each season, including performances at downtown San Diego’s historic Symphony Hall.

The orchestra also provides a Chamber Music Series at La Jolla’s TSRI to highlight individual orchestra members performing with esteemed guest artists. Each year, from July through September, the Symphony presents an outdoor Summer Pops season at Embarcadero Marina Park South, mixing classical favorites and pop music in a festive, outdoor atmosphere on San Diego’s picturesque waterfront.
