I went for the concert... It was rather good. Eminence is a youthful and energetic orchestra. Daniel Smith is a very animatic conductor!
My only disappointment was that they played the theme from The Lost World instead of the original Jurassic Park theme, which i think carries is a much better listen for the beginners.
in any case, the encore performances topped it off by saying they hit all of Williams's best pieces!
