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.

Description

This delightful evening of lively music begins with the choral and orchestral splendor of Anton Bruckner’s magnificent Te Deum, followed by the lively Latin rhythms of Constant Lambert’s The Rio Grande, a concerto for piano, chorus and orchestra which Maestro Scribner describes as “one joyous romp!” Joseph Holt will be the featured pianist for Rio and also shares the conductor’s podium along with Maestro Scribner.

From there, take a trip to the golden age of Broadway with your favorite tunes from Rodgers & Hammerstein that will have the whole family humming along!
