How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This NSO concert was one of the best NSO concerts I can remember attending. The Beethoven concerto was performed exquisitely by Arabela Steinbacher. The surprise of th concert was the Variations work of Boris Bachler, a relatively unknown composer who seems to have been a master of orchestration. Richard Strauss' most challenging tone poem was done extremely well. In short, it was a rewarding concert from begiining to end, not always the case with some NSO concerts.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Probably a good idea to dress up for a KC concert.
The KC garage works well. Metro is good with the shuttle from Foggy Bottom.
