`February 14th, 2018 was Kolani and I’s second Valentine’s Day together. This year, he surprised me with tickets to the Seattle Symphony to see La La Land live at Benaroya Hall! I was so beyond excited, La La Land is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I couldn’t wait to go to the symphony.
Neither of us had been to Benaroya Hall before, and I was blown away as soon as we walked inside. They have a restaurant, a coffee shop, and a gift shop before you enter the actual music hall. The symphony is so visually stunning, I couldn’t stop staring at the architecture.
On the way into the hall, we walked past an open garage door and overheard some musicians rehearsing. We peered around the corner and learned that they were warming up for the La La Land concert! We got a quick little picture with them, and it’s honestly one of my favorite photos of us now.
We had AMAZING seats, I couldn’t have been happier with how everything panned out. The staff was friendly and there was a restroom and a bar on our tier level too! Another awesome bonus is that you could pre-order drinks for intermission-order them before the show, and they’ll be ready for you to enjoy at intermission, you won’t need to spend those 20 short minutes waiting in line for refreshments!
We had such a wonderful time, it was such a treat to watch the movie in such an incredible place, and hearing the music live was beautiful beyond words. The music in La La Land is indescribable and perhaps underrated.
I can’t wait to go back and see another show soon, we had such a lovely, magical Valentine’s Day.
This has been a chloscall.
Until next time,
