The coffee sold at the Symphony is very weak. Can something be done about this?

Another challenging and stimulating plunge into the fantastical sounds of modern music. Expertly played and enthusiastically received.

Sorry to say that, but the last part of the matinee - Joan la Barbera's performance - was quite unbearable. A few people stood up and left, although that's rude...

The first 3/4 of the show were very good, though!
