    Outstandin orchestra and director, off-course. Great jazz program as well, infrequent jazz concerts though. Yet if you are lucky with the time of your visit - they are really good.

    Beautiful architecture and concert hall. I saw movie master John Williams conduct here and it will be a memory I cherish forever. Dress up and bring a date, she'll love it.

    Love the CSO! Definitely one of the better orchestras in the US. The space was beautiful and cozy as well.

    When you're in the steeply raked seats do NOT lean forward! You block the sight lines of the paupers behind you in the nosebleed seats!
