Lots of fun! The comedy had me rolling! It did have some off-color songs but for the most part was clean.

Almost always a pleasant night out. Each concert is different and occasionally misses the mark, but most are worth while for a fun and relaxing evening .

Saw the CPO with the Jeans and Classics - Fink Floyd on Saturday. Absolutely great concert. Wonderful and extensive use of the CPO in the music. The Pops series is absolutely fantastic.

Made the mistake of sitting orchestra center and was below the stage and not able to see a lot. Sit in one of the wings by the front for the best experience. Good acoustics and a great symphony!
