Although we have a local symphony, I don’t attend it very much. I think I’ve heard it perform once. Not sure why. I was privileged to hear Andre Watts with the Seattle Symphony a fear years ago. The tickets were purchased months in advance and I had a good seat. I also attended the pre-concert lecture. That was enjoyable but in two weeks I got a seat in the nosebleed section for a regular performance. Don’t remember the first half at all. I have a fear and loathing of heights and I felt sick through that first section and I didn’t dare look down. After intermission I felt better and enjoyed the remainder of the concert but to this day I can’t remember what was performed.
