Let me set this up a bit before I begin. My uncle plays tuba for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, whom I've seen many times, so my expectations are rather lofty. That being said, The Boise Philharmonic is a great way to spend an evening. No, it's no CSO, but it is still top rate entertainment and reasonably affordable. I've only been a few times, but I've always enjoyed myself, and I'm more than happy to recommend this to anyone who loves symphony.
