    It was absolutely wonderful -- first class all the way. Thoroughly enjoyed every single performance by the DSO, as well as the conductor.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the DSO concert last evening! And the pleasant company in the meet up group! Impeccable timing when the conductor mentioned "cannon" and the outside thunder reverberated! Wasn't the sky lightning amazing on the drive home? (I still have the $1 fee and will bring it next time.)

    Thanks for the opportunity to hear a live orchestra and the performance was outstanding. I met some great people and I look forward to meeting up with you again.

    Thanks sue for arranging a very enjoyable evening. It was a pleasure to meet each of you. I almost made it to peabodys, but after making three trips around Woodward Avenue turnarounds, I gave up trying to find it and headed home. I hope we can do it again sometime soon. Jo Ann

      Aww, JoAnn, so sorry. I know you're not from around that area...I should have had you follow me. =(

      July 20, 2013

    • Jo Ann m.

      Thanks Tammy. I am familiar enough with the area that it shouldn't have been a problem, but I relied on my GPS which brought me in the back way via Brown road, and supposedly it was just a right turn onto Woodward and I should have been there. NOT! Maybe next time!

    Can't make Cosi; will look to meet everyone in the lobby of Seligman Center 7:15 - 7:30 p.m. How do I find everyone in lobby? I'll just watch for people to start arriving and will hopefully recognize people. I plan to wear black capri's with a white eyelet sleeveless top. Looking forward to the evening. (Also plan to stop at Peabody's.)

    Hi Sue, I'm looking forward to tonight! I just have a question..... You have $1.00 posted on the site do we pay you in person? I didn't see a link to amazon or pay pal.

    July 19, 2013

  • Christine

    Sounds good; thanks Debbie! We can get a table and save it under the meetup group.

    July 19, 2013

  • Debbie

    Recent members: all are welcome to meet at Cosi (28674 Telegraph Rd. just south of 12 mi.) at 6:00 before concert. None of us have met, as this is the first meetup.

    July 19, 2013

  • Debbie

    Ill put a couple DAISIES on the table at COSI so we know what strangers to sit with; I don't have any balloons!!

    July 19, 2013

  • Jennifer R.

    Good Morning and I'm excited about this evening. See you at Cosi and have a great day.

    Does anyone need a ticket? My friend can't go now...has to go out of town, so I have an extra.

    July 17, 2013

    • Tammy

      So we're good, Donna? I'm planning on Peabody's afterward. I'll be 'lady in red' ... Haha!

      July 18, 2013

    • Donna

      Yes, your extra ticket is sold. We can square up when I meet you in the lobby between 7:15 and 7:30. Thanks.

  • Linda G.

    Not surprisingly, it turns out my ticket is at "will call" so I will not have enough time to be eating at Corsi's after all. (Glad I never had to take a class of kids on a fieldtrip!)

    1 · July 18, 2013

  • Donna

    I will introduce myself to you and the group on Friday night. I believe you will be in the lobby area before the concert. If nothing else comes up, I'm also planning to go to Peabodys for the afterglow. Donna

    Looks like it is working out for me to join the hungry at Cosi's before the concert!

    I am icing in three spots but plan to be at COSI, concert, and hopefully Peabody's, if I can go that long without tending to my injuries from another meetup! :) Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I am not going to be able to meet at Cosi but still planning on meeting afterwards.

    Don't know that I can make Cosi; but will look to meet everyone in the lobby at 7:15 p.m.; hopefully, we can sit together as much as possible. Maybe, stop somewhere after; playing that by ear. I do have my ticket for the concert. Have a nice week to everyone.

    I'll have to cancel because I just found out my grandkids are in a play that evening.

    I think the 6:00 pm meet time at Cosi sounds great. Lets plan on that!

    July 11, 2013

  • Debbie

    Hi symphony fans: There do not appear to be any toes to step on here (ie. organizer has not checked in re: below) so unless someone has another idea, I am going to second the earlier suggestion to meet at Cosi (28674 Telegraph Rd. just south of 12 mi.) before the concert, maybe 6:00 (?) Anyone up for meeting? Food or coffee is cheap...don't have much to lose!! Otherwise I will see you at 7:15 in the lobby.

    July 11, 2013

    • Tammy

      I'd be ok with that since we haven't heard anything otherwise. Either that or the suggestion below about dessert/coffee/cocktail after. I'm good with either!

    Looking forward to this group and to the music.

    July 9, 2013

  • Jo Ann m.

    Thank you for clarifying. I tried buying ticket online, but was unable to complete it, as the DSO format was requiring a specific seat be selected. I called DSO directly and purchased ticket for $23.50; they are mailing it to me. Do we have plans on where and when we will meet fir the performance?

    July 9, 2013

  • Debbie

    All July 19 seats are inside and general admission despite the fact that your online ticket, which you can print at home, will show a row and seat. I clarified this with the DSO box office. The comment I posted was pasted from an email I received from the DSO. I called for clarification about the mention of lawn seats since it was indoors, and was told that was just a generic response. There are no lawn seats. Sorry for confusion.

    July 9, 2013

  • Jo Ann m.

    I'm back from the Big Apple and would like to attend this performance. I see tickets can be bought on line, but someone mentioned lawn vs premium. Is there lawn seating here? Also, what are the final arrangements for meeting the group?

    I look forward to this new experience and meeting great people.

    July 4, 2013

  • Ginger K.

    I just received an e-mail from the DSO that lets me order my ticket for the July 19 Seligman Center concert, so I will do so in the next day or two. My preference is to meet in lobby around 7:15 p.m. to get acquainted, then perhaps get together after the concert for coffee or cocktail or desert. (Just a suggestion.)

    1 · July 2, 2013

  • Linda G.

    Probably beat you all at making this mistake: bought ticket online and also clicked payment for the $7 parking in a parking garage which, I later discover, turns out to be in Detroit at the Max Fisher Music place, not where we will be for this concert! Guess I will consider it a donation! I am having my ticket held in the "will call" line. Hope that does not end up being in the parking garage too!

    1 · July 1, 2013

  • Debbie

    Feel free to order tickets online on your own. We WILL be able to sit together. Here is email I received from DSO : The ticket has a grid number on it so we can keep track of how many tickets were purchased for a specific area (lawn vs. premium), but all the seating is General Admission. There are no assigned seats or rows. Again, the row and seat numbers are for our internal grid, not for patron seating. So, you can sit with the large group that you are going with.

    1 · July 1, 2013

  • Debbie

    Not too happy. I called the box office and group sales and two people told me it was general admission and there would not be seat numbers. SOOO, I ordered a ticket online and printed it and it turns out I am in Row 7 Seat 17. (Group sales must be made with one credit card. Don't see that happening.) Somebody want to get seat next to 17??

    July 1, 2013

    • Christine

      Yes, Debbie, I spoke to Chuck who handles the DSO group sales this morning and the only was to hold a group of tickets ( 10 or more) is to reserve with a credit card and collect money inidividually. So, easiest to purchase on your own:-)

      July 1, 2013

  • Christine

    Sue, I'm not sure if you want to look into handling the tickets, etc for this outing, but DSO does have a group rate for 10 or more people which we have (you get a free ticket as organizer) and we get a 10% discount then our seats would be in the same section. Daniel, I think dinner before or dessert/wine/coffee after sounds like another option, as well.

    July 1, 2013

    • A former member

      One of the easiest ways to handle this is for the organizer to set up an account with amazon (you can do this right through meetup--I've done it). Amazons takes about 5% or less and you just charge the difference and it is all a wash with a group rate. Then we can all pay online-- this site and Sue the organizer pays one tab. However we can all continue to figure this out but until the organizer looks on her meetup & changes her settings so as to get notifications as we post or try to email NOTHING will be accomplished here. I sure hope she looks soon!0
