    Dvořák Symphony No.9 is absolutely amazing! We go to these event every year.

    Tips - BYO picnic rug, sometimes they give them out but I think that's only the mazda events. Always bring wet wipes, and a book if you're coming early to get a good spot.

    We always arrive about an hour before and sit towards the back. If flying solo you might be able to get a seat still.
