Baltimore and Seattle make $1 million from opening concert

And they must be praying this will continue throughout the season.

The Baltimore Symphony scored heavily with the black-tie crowd thanks to a rare appearance by Itzhak Perlman in the Mendelssohn concerto.

Seattle made $920,000+ thanks to having Bill Gates in the audience and Joyce DiDonato on stage.

Third best were Houston, at $730,000, with Sir Ben Kingsley narrating Peter and the Wolf. The last-named was kept well away from the door.
