  • Quite frankly, the concert hall in this arts center may be, acoustically one of the two best I’ve experienced in my lifetime. I found myself thinking of the hall as a musical instrument in its own right. We were sitting in the upper balcony, or loge, and we’re treated to a glorious experience, listening to performances of all three Rachmaninov piano concertos, all in one evening. Truly an extraordinary experience.
  • I went there to watch Yuja Wang piano recital.. it's memorable experience.. The Arts center is so beautiful with all the facilities..
