The event was great but the people in front and on one side of me were distracting.
The girl to my left kept rubbing the inside of the thigh of the man next to her. The woman in front, left suddenly during the first half. The man next to her kept moving his head, picking pimples in his beard, and smelling what he retrieved. The girl returned in the second helf, put her head on his shoulder, obscuring my view. Etc.
Concert duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
About the Ticket Supplier: New York Philharmonic
The New York Philharmonic is by far the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. Founded in 1842 by a group of local musicians led by American-born Ureli Corelli Hill, the Orchestra currently plays some 180 concerts a year. On December 18, 2004, the Philharmonic gave its 14,000th concert—a milestone unmatched by any other orchestra in the world.
Since 1917 the Philharmonic has recorded nearly 2,000 albums; more than 500 recordings are currently available. In February 2003, the Orchestra was honored by The Recording Academy with a Trustees Award in recognition of its outstanding contributions to the industry and American culture. Members of the Philharmonic also performed on the 45th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, televised internationally from New York’s Madison Square Garden — the first time that a major symphony orchestra had performed live on the Grammy Awards.
