Boston Symphony Hall

Hi all,

I have a ticket to see John Williams at Boston Symphony Hall next week. I have a front row table seat (A3), however on reflection I am a bit worried about the neck-cramming that might be required (the seat was slightly discounted). Can anyone confirm what sitting here is like?

You are seeing John Williams with the Boston POPS, I imagine? He's doing a guest spot? That should be really a great show.

If you are truly in the front row, you will be looking up at the stage somewhat. You may need to crane your neck a bit, I suppose. The stage is about 6 feet off of the floor at that point. I don't think it's the worst thing in the world. Personally, I prefer sitting a few rows farther back. However, I wouldn't give up your table for seats in the balcony or in the back of the orchestra. You will enjoy the concert from your seats.

There is not a lot to see. Look up at the end of a "set" when the conductor turns to the audience ... the rest of the time, just enjoy the music.
