  • 9/30/2012: A1: INAUGURAL PERFORMANCE: Internationally acclaimed Chinese pianist Lang Lang took the stage before a crowd of 3,400 on opening night at the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Hall at the Green Music Center.


    PC: International acclaimed pianist Lang Lang performed on opening night at the Joan and Sanford J. Weill Hall on the Sonoma State University campus on Saturday night, Sept. 29, 2012.

For those sitting on the lawn, there have been a few changes since last September's grand opening weekend. Most notably, the restrooms behind the lawn have opened.

If you don't want to bring a picnic, there are now dining packages available for the first three rows of tables on the dining terrace.

"It's about $65 extra for the tables," Anderson said. "It always comes with a three-course meal served by Elaine Bell."

The university suggests people arrive through the north side of the campus, closest to the Green Music Center, to avoid getting lost.

After the concert, some cars may be directed out of the south end, in order to speed up traffic flow.

In the months to come, a few of the concerts expected to sell out early include the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale on Dec. 15, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra on March 11, and violinist Hilary Hahn on April 27.

"Hilary Hahn was one of the big sellers, right out of the gate," Anderson said. "Those tickets were flying out as soon as they went on sale."
