I always love the Kennedy Center, but I bought tickets for my dad's birthday. He's big into classical music and I knew it would be perfect for him. Everything in terms of booking and picking up the tickets was easy. Our seats were good, about 1/2 up the Orchestra Seating. The performance was spectacular! The Henze piece was not my cup of tea, but the other two, Brahms and Mendelssohn were beyond-words-gorgeous. Thanks for offering this great deal!
Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64
Brahm - Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98
