It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

Ate at the KC Cafe on the Terrace Level. Reasonable prices, great food, and no waiting. Ideal for having a civilized meal before the show.

An outstanding beginning for Maestro Eschenbach's career in Washington. Superb chorus made the 9th a memorable event. The NSO has rarely sounded better. Red Velvet seat was fantastic, well worth the extra.

Eschenbach and the NSO were spectacular. What a great concert to kick-off the new season and welcome our new leader.
