“Lovely Setting for Opera Under The Stars”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Lovely Setting for Opera Under The Stars. Sadly it was heaving and the sound system was about as loud as an iPhone at 200 feet.

“Free concerts every night in the summer”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Free concerts every night in the summer, what's not to like? Beautiful views, there is a snack bar close by and a playground there as well.

“Descent band”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Once I walked by and it looks like some people were rockin out. Performance was audible and if I had liked the music I woulda stayed.

“Beautiful architecture and a great sound, with an unsurpassed view of the lake.”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

My band plays here every summer. It is a wonderful venue and the concerts are always well attended. They have concessions when there are events. They also have open air "bike-in" church services on Sundays in the summer. My only complaint is that the bathrooms aren't always open!
