    Get front row seats if you're interested in conducting, want to hear inner string parts, or just want to enjoy the music with legroom. More than the bulkhead on a plane.

    Awesome space. Take a minute to notice how the noise of the main lobby is dampened when you reach the next floor, the mainentrance of the theater. Take a sec to appreciate the period wood paneling.

    If you have to leave early, that's ok - do so between sets but watch the performance on the CC TV just outside the auditorium until you MUST go.
