We really enjoyed the November 24 Bolero performance; the string section was strong and the violin performance by Karen Gomyo was remarkable. The evening's music compared favorably with the best symphonies we have seen world wide.

We were wowed yesterday by SLSO's virtuosity in handling some challenging material beautifully. A pared down ensemble partnered with the pianist to bring Rhapsody in Blue dancing to life. The full orchestra powered into swing for the Gershwin F concerto. Great concert!
