An outstanding beginning for Maestro Eschenbach's career in Washington. Superb chorus made the 9th a memorable event. The NSO has rarely sounded better. Red Velvet seat was fantastic, well worth the extra.

Eschenbach and the NSO were spectacular. What a great concert to kick-off the new season and welcome our new leader.
