depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

What an incredibile evening. Susan Graham has a wonderful voice and really did justice to the Ruchert Songs. The Mahler First was spectacular. MTT made me hear the symphony in ways that I had never heard it before.
