How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I was completely able to enjoy the concert since I came prepared. It was quite cold, almost half the audience left at intermission becuase they were underdressed. After I got my neighbors warmed up with my extras we were all albe to relax and just enjoy the music. I loved the venue and was surprised at the sound quality in an outdoor venue like this. I heard there are plans in the works for more outings, I don't think it will work out. As much as I enjoyed myself I don't think I would go again. Too much ado about comfort, seating (the metal bleachers stay cold), the portapotties, and the overabundance of outlets for alcohol, to make it fun for me. The only thing which would entice me back is hearing that there were vendors going through the bleachers with coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Dress warmly with lots of layers and go at least one time, but to relax and really enjoy classical music go to symphony hall.

Help others enjoy a great night out

...Seriously, be prepared for the cold! I saw so many people leave during the first half, just getting up and walking out because they were underdressed. Then, the rush for the exits at intermission was as heavy as the rush for the restrooms and food vendors. Even amongst those who stayed the whole night, many did it feuled by the love of the music despite their freezing in their seats. Layer, layer, layer and then warm underdressing and heavy outerwear.
