What a difference a few days and different Goldstar venues makes. Efficient pleasant will call-same line as regular patrons, line host directing you to one of six wickets. Thirty seconds to enter with fast bar code scanning. They do indeed give anyone the best seats available... we were in the 10th row Orchestra-don't think would want to be any closer. The bar was fast with good wine though a bit pricey at $9-10 a glass. We pre-ordered our intermission drinks and were waiting for us appropriately chilled. Even though Michael Tilson Thomas was injured and left at intermission, the resident conductor Donato Cabrera stepped in without missing a beat. He solicited an impassioned performance from the Orchestra- a bit like watching Gustavo Dudamel.
Granted, there were many events going on in the City that afternoon- Giants clinching the NL West, Breast Cancer Walk, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, but if something by the Symphony catches your eye at Goldstar prices, do it, knowing you will get the best seats available that day, hassle free and a reliable performance.
