We had a wonderful time. The acoustics in the hall were wonderful. The orchestra and conductor were terrific. Especially loved the Brahms symphony. From the second tier it is nice to have binoculars.

'Twas a lush evening at Symphony Hall. Went for the Brahms, but fell in love with Kodaly and Bloch.
