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!

The concert was great, but I didn't like the seats we were assigned.

Much better than reviews in the paper. The first pieces were relatively unknown. The fiery piece was composed by a Soviet composer and reflects his environment and requirements. The Romeo and Juliet pieces did not disappoint.

Third row seats are very cool when there is a soloist.

Quotes & Highlights

Read "more ": conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier.


“Dawn over the River Moscow,” the bright-eyed Prelude to Modest Mussorgsky’s unfinished final opera Khovanshchina, lifts the curtain on a mesmerizing musical journey. Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto follows: an impassioned work whose Armenian folk-influenced melodies belie the daunting technical virtuosity demanded of the soloist. The program concludes with scenes from Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet, perhaps the composer’s most deeply felt creation, and music worthy of Shakespeare’s timeless romance.

Inside Music, an informative talk with James Keller, begins one hour prior to concerts and is free to ticketholders.
