    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.

    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!
