The performance was stellar, especially the purity of the clarinetist's tone from the bottom to the top of his range in a Mozart concerto, and the electrifying performance of Piazzolla's The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, with Nadja...continued

The clarinet soloist was absolutely incredible!!! I didn't want him to stop playing, and was so pleased that he received a standing ovation from what seemed like the entire house. It was a performance I will never forget.

Our tickets were awaiting us at the will-call at the Balboa and our seats were quite good on the right side of the orchestra about 60 feet or so from the stage. We could see and hear perfectly. (No obstructed views at the Balboa.) This is David...continued

Venue was great - love how they restored the old Balboa Theatre. The musicians and conductor were really good and enjoyed the music, especially Benjamin Britten's work.

Our first time to the Balboa Theater and it was beautiful. Such a lovely restoration. The acoustics were good and the orchestra used them to perfection. We happily met an old friend there we hadn't seen in years. Wonderful evening!
