The Bergen Performing Arts Center has a capacity of 1,367.

The CV cellcerter says the venue looks like a refurbished movie theater - it's very long and narrow. The stage is not very deep, so Clay won't have much room to manuver in front of the orchestra.

It's 7:50, and the orchestra members are taking their seats. The annoucer said the performance is in two parts, so it should be the regular program - symphony, than Clay.

Cellcerter estimates it's 80% or more full.

From the CH

Just got a report from playbiller, at the concert - the balcony is sold out except for the last two rows!

The cellcerter keeps going on about how small the stage is - the conductor will be right behind Clay.

The crotch talk has started already.... :P

The show is starting.

So far the sound quality for the music is not great. Angels We Have Heard on High / Joy to the World / Deck the Halls - very fast medley.

The conductor (who is a woman btw) said something after the first song, but it was not understandable over the stream.

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas. [Not me personally - I hate snow. :( ]

Let It Snow.

What Child is This.

The strings and the percussion are coming through on the stream pretty well, but the conductor is still hard to hear. Hopefully, Clay will be more intelligible.

Something Strauss-ish now. Definitely a waltz.

The next song I don't recognize - it's very fast and horn-heavy.

O Holy Night.

Why did I read this as "its very fast and horny"! :lol:

Yikes - my computer spazzed out and I had to re-boot. When I reconnected, the orchestra was playing something very ompah-y and the crowd is clapping along.

It's 8:45, and the intermission is starting.

:blink: CV is all about wanting to hold Clay's baton, bikini waxes, and the need for proper lubrication. It's shocking I tell you. :o :P

Just read this at the CH as part of a Verona recap. The bolded part made me smile.

The musicians were fully engaged last night and seemed to have a great time. One female musician was crying at the end of AIW.
