    I would like to come to some of the concerts. I attempted to come on Sunday, Aug. 2 but was unable to get in. I walk with a walker and expected that I would be able to go down to the basement using the elevator, but found that it was not in service. I pressed the button, but no light came on so it must have been turned off. I walked over to the top of stairs and didn’t see anyone on door duty. It was 3:05 by that time and it looked like all the seats were taken and there were a few people on the lower steps looking in the doorway. I decided to leave.
    I would like to come this Sunday, Aug. 9 and will plan to arrive by 2:30 pm and hope that I can get in and get a seat.
