The weather for the Grant Park Orchestra concert did us a paradoxical assist. We were in the free seats behind the (paying) members' up-front section 15 minutes before "curtain" when the storm clouds burst. They took down the ropes and let us into the members' section, under the Gehry bandshell's awning, and then let everyone stay put for the ten-minute-rain-delayed concert. So, thank you, weather, for the 8th row center seat. June 28, 2014.
