Park at the exit and walk. Much quicker to get out afterwards that way.

The acoustics were good and the music was enjoyable. I really appreciated having the big screens that projected the performers up close. Our seats near the middle of the Loge area were excellent for viewing the performers. They were uncomfortable...continued

It was ok. I enjoyed the segment on Carl St Clair's career. Porgy and Bess segment -hard to understand the story without notes and was difficult to follow.

We had a great time! I wish I had known from before that we can bring a picnic with us, but that didn't take away from a great concert.
