How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I attended the New York Philharmonic "Planets" concert and movie on Sunday afternoon, 7/7/13. Goldstar provided 2nd tier side box seats. Some people criticize the acoustics at Avery Fisher Hall but, in my opinion, many areas of the Hall are world-class, particularly the 2nd tier boxes. So sound was excellent, as was the performance. My only criticism is that the HD Odyssey film was the original version from 2010. I feel it should have been updated for this concert. Bramwell Tovey, the Conductor and Host, was very entertaining. I've seen him before and always find his commentary to be funny and insightful. And his choice of encore, John Williams' Darth Vader theme from Star Wars, was spot-on. I give the concert/movie 4 stars instead of 5 solely based on the movie issue.
