Loved the beautiful classical music. A lovely time was enjoyed by the four of us. I especially liked the fun comments/education provided by Nuvi Mehta prior to hearing the performances.

You just can't go wrong with this venue - it's the Embarcadero for goodness' sake! Add a picnic dinner, San Diego skyline, sunset behind the stage + the symphony = perfect! Goldstar pricing makes it even better!

Delighful evening,wonderful music and good seats.
Unfortunatly half the seats that were the closest remained empty and the next section which we were in could have been brought closer to the stage.
We parked at the $10 parking garage and there...continued
