Found parking in a garage a few blocks away for $8 all day Sunday rate. Arrive in the city 45 minutes early so as not to have to stress over finding parking. Limited on street parking. Spring for a parking lot.

What an incredibile evening. Susan Graham has a wonderful voice and really did justice to the Ruchert Songs. The Mahler First was spectacular. MTT made me hear the symphony in ways that I had never heard it before.
