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.

Seeing a musical legend in such a gorgeous setting was a highlight, and sitting in the fourth row (thanks Goldstar!) was amazing. How lucky lucky are we to have one of the great concert halls in our backyard. Long live Wayne Shorter.

I was disappointed because it indicated that my seats would be "mid orchestra." We were on the right side and only 6 rows from the back.
