We attended this sell-out event on New Year's Eve, 2013, with a Road Scholar group. The seats were comfortable, the acoustics were good in the lower level back of the venue, the lighting added to the performance, and the temperature was comfortable.
The guest conductor talked and joked w/the audience, which was not at all what I expected at the symphony, but it fit easily with the mostly "pops" music of the evening. The orchestra played very well and the soloist (operatic soprano) was entertaining.
The attire for the 7:00 p.m. performance was not black tie and evening gowns as I had expected, although I did see a number of suits and cocktail dresses. You would be very comfortable in business attire to dressy casual.
As in any sold out event, the lines for the ladies room at intermission were impossibly long.
