Great sound, for everyone, wonderfully rich array of musical events. Now that the Conservatory has ditched Benjamin Zander after a long, happy and happy-making career there, I loathe it as an institution and will no longer donate to it. But you can't deny that Jordan Hall is an acoustical marvel, and a more democratic one than Symphony Hall, where only the rich can afford seats you can hear in.
