We were not able to go to a concert, but did hear a beautiful one as we walked and rested at stops in the Betty Ford Gardens.

We had seats in the amphitheater which were very comfortable. The sound system, lighting and overall experience was top notch. We were surprised by the fair cost of items at the concession stand. Looking forward to next years shoe schedule.

We have had the privilege to experience many world class amphitheaters and this one is one of the best. Intimate, great acoustics and a wonderful natural mountain setting. We listened to the Philadelphia Orchestra who were wonderful. Any music will be enhanced at this venue.
