It went really well, I was so, so anxious that I almost left during the first piece (they opened with a Mozart oboe quartet piece) but I am really glad I stayed the whole time, and it was only about an hour and a half.
It wasn't actually a "real" auditorium and not really a real symphony either, it was a smaller performance in a much smaller area than I had thought it would be.
They played some stuff that I ended up looking up when I got home. One of the things that caught me by surprise was this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP8C2b6qauk
this seemed fairly abrasive live, especially coming after Mozart and Gershwin. But it was really exciting and it was during that performance that I started to relax and really enjoy everything.
they also played some classical/bluegrass fusion but I don't even know what bluegrass is, seemed like some kind of folk music?
it was almost all female performers and some of them were qt asians...>tfw no azn classical musician gf
it was a pretty good experience overall, really made my night and even my week. I feel like the next time I have work it won't feel so stressful because I did this which sort of makes the work seem worth it, if that makes sense. like a really good thing in life balancing out a bit of the usual stress...
also I think I was the youngest person there. might go to bed soon after this post.
