There are really no bad seats in the SF Symphony Hall. We were 'way up nearly able to touch the ceiling lights, it seemed, yet the sound was perfect. The concert was absolutely brilliant. The modern Bates compositions stretched our minds: (husband hated it, wife liked a lot of parts of it, interesting discussion.) The two violin romances were lovely, and then the symphony was fantastic. How lucky we are in the Bay Area! Pluses 2nd tier folks enjoy: nice big restrooms and a snack bar right on this level.

Mason Bates piece was absolutely fabulous! Oh how my husband and I wished for an encore. We cannot wait to hear his full-length performance someday. We appreciate also the juxtaposition of Bates's creations to the ones done by Beethoven. ...continued
