I would suggest to bring a bottle of water and small snake for the intermission.

This event was wonderful! I enjoyed the conductor's talk beforehand, the orchestra and the vocals brought a magical otherworldly experience to life. Verdi would be proud.
The venue was a good choice since it was convenient, had good acoustics...continued

The performance was great as was the brief informative lecture beforehand. I also like the venue and would attend other events there.

About the Ticket Supplier: Nova Vista Symphony

The Nova Vista Symphony, established in 1966, is composed of more than 60 volunteer musicians of wide age range and ethnic background. The orchestra’s fourfold mission is: to make live classical music attractive and accessible to individuals and families at a reasonable price; to expose youngsters to classical music and educate tomorrow’s audiences; to provide an opportunity for musicians talented but choosing careers other than music to perform with a top quality orchestra; and to provide a showcase for local soloists and composers.
