Well Georgie boy came to New York And this trip just topped it of ....anyone who knows me knows I love all the fuss ..what a place more »
What can anyone really say? A venue that has been around for over a hundred fifty years and when it's empty you can hear a pin drop. Lavish and rich and full of History, this iconic Hall was built for music and hopefully it will be around for the next 200 years! Keep practicing!
My son's high school band performed there the same piece they did at school auditorium. The acoustic was so good that it sounded like a different music. The best place to enjoy the true quality sound of music.
