When I lived in larger cities I attended a few symphonic concerts here and there, largely taking them for granted. You are lucky indeed to be able to hear and see such performances!

Hey....this is our national uniform man!!!!
By the way, I just attended Patricia Barber concert in Carnegie Hall last week. I haven't thought about it before, but now since you mentioned it, I think you're right. The only person in a black leather jacket there was me. There were no more Russians. The rest of the people wore these beautiful, multi-color(some of them were color-faded already) jackets that are always on sale at Sears.
But, the concert was awesome...
I attended more than my share of the russians from Rimssky-Korsakav to Stravinsky with Solenean and the L.A. phil before they moved to the Disney Center and the tickets became to pricey.
Yes it is very moving when you see a great performance,when the entire Orchestra is functioning as one. Thanks for the observation it was very insightful.
