I like that you focused on the event and the meat of the evening's performances and then just inserted yourself at the very end. I think that is a good framework for your writing. Sometimes you insert yourself too much in the middle and it gets in the way of your incites. Good job. Sounds like the symphony is off and running.

i'd been waiting for something like this for 20 years, through the interminable Gerard Schwartz reign of boredom.

it was $12. i went and sat behind the orchestra during a piece, between the percussionists. i had a drink during the performance. hipsters were present. the elderly were present. kids were present. morlot was so excited watching the turntable piece, and that it was sold out. there was no wall between the audience and the band.

this is the kind of thing that makes people WANT to go to the symphony. not more freaking mozart. my only criticisms are the weak (untitled) name and the closing of the bar during the music. relax further, SSO.

sounds neat, though as for Schoenberg I'd have to have a lot of liquor in me. When I think of him I always recall a great line from a Stegner book where he's at a party and a pompous pianist says to him "I can play Schoenberg" and Stegner responds: "yes, but why would you want to"
