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.

It was a great concert. The contralto, Nathalie Stutzmann was perfect for this Wagner piece.
The Bruckner 7th Symphony was so beautiful, even that long, about 75 minutes. The NSO performed perfectly.
Great evening.

Really enjoyed it. Nathalie Stutzmann has a unique voice and passion for music. Needless to say, the NSO performance was impressive.
