Why attend a 'live' orchestral concert?

Hear it from some of these audience members:

"Going to a concert is an excuse for me to meet up with my friends."
- Cathy Wong

"A concert is an event. Sometimes I buy tickets to two nights of the same programme, because I know that it will be different each time."
- David Leung

"Price-driven - The standard of the orchestra is not bad and the ticket prices are reasonable according to international standards. I prefer it to listening to a CD because there is more substance to it; Spiritually driven - a live performance is much more exciting than listening to a recording. It takes me out of this world because I am so immersed in the music. I can almost feel the composer or ‘truth’ talking to me."
- Anthony Cheng
