Saw the Rachmaninov piano concerto #2 with the Austin Symphony and bought a great seat that some series member turned in. It was keyboard side and perfect acoustics. The musicians in the orchestra did a good job and I would go back again in future.

Long Centre an excellent listening venue. The orchestra and its conductor rate as one of the best in the world. The conductor's accessibility attending pre-concert talks a real bonus.
