Walking around Boston on a muggy Wednesday morning last week, I made my way to Symphony Hall. Alas, the doors were locked tighter than a clenched fist. All I wanted was a quick glimpse of the place, just a peek inside. But there was no getting in that day.
So I'm curious, oh mighty Classical Notes blog-reader - what's the coolest concert hall you ever set foot in? Details, please.
Last year, I went to a solo piano concert at Kenninji in Kyoto, Japan. It's the oldest Zen temple in Japan. The concert was in the temple's stone garden during the spring cherry blossom season. The blossoms lit up in sepia/pink, petals falling in the night wind... It was a very beautiful experience. Here's a photo of the garden the concert was held at.
