Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh.

The music was spectacular. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra played medleys from all 15 films that Danny Elfman scored for Tim Burton movies. (Two movies he didn't score: Ed Wood and Sweeney Todd.) The Mendelssohn Choir added their voices, and the effect was spot on.

I cracked open my Danny Elfman/Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box the next day (namely, Alice in Wonderland). If that music doesn't get you inspired to create art, you need to turn it up louder.
