While the music was good it was not well organized. People were packed in but seats were still open and the coordinators were t shy about asking people whose purses and jackets occputying seats would move them. They took the easy way out and asked people standing (who could have been sitting in those seats) to leave. This needs to be free but ticketed event so people know they have a guaranteed seat and won't have to be told to leave.

The orchestra and the choir gave as an excellent performance. It was great to hear some of the history of Beethoven, and I never get tired of listening to Symphony No. 9. The piano soloist and the guest soloists were the highlights of the evening, but I was amazed by how young everyone was, delivering this a great spectacle. Bravo!!!!
