Dvorak New World Symphony with Birmingham Symphony Orcheastra. The hall was about 80% full not bad for 2.30 pm on a wed but we were about the youngest there. As we are too young for concessions the tickets with Januarys 25% discount were £30 each

We went to the symphony Hall on Christmas Eve afternoon to a Christmas concert by candle light with the Mozart orchestra and choir. The afternoon was pure joy, and started off the Christmas weekend in a lovely way.
