Attended this venue for a few performances. Very nice environment. Seats are relatively comfortable. The acoustics are very good. Visibility is good at most angles but can be challenging if your seated in certain areas.

The staff was kind and helpful, the venue is beautiful, and we enjoyed a great show! The only problem was the traffic jam getting in from the main road. Better signage might be helpful!

The Strathmore Music Center is a terrific performing arts space. It is as acoustically perfect as a large concert hall can be. My wife and attended the the US Navy Band Concert celebrating the 242 Anniversary of the establishment of the U.S. Navy. The acoustics...More

Sight and Sound... there’s not a bad seat in the house! From the closest orchestra seat to the farthest corner of the upper balcony, every seat is perfect. Quite remarkable really.

Strathmore is easy to get to and park at with a good auditorium and good program of performances over the year. Its pre performance dinning area is small, especially in the winter, and not particularly comfortable.

We are so lucky to have a beautiful music venue in Montgomery County. BSO is a wonderful orchestra, programs are quite varied and accommodate all types of musical tastes. Sure beats fighting traffic and pay outrageous parking fees at the Kennedy Center.

Aesthetically pleasing, metro accessible, plenty of parking. Went most recently to watch a free outdoor movie. Really great time. Only suggestion--could have more food trucks. Ben & Jerry's was there, though! Have attended concerts there in the past. Love this place!

It's nice to have a concert venue in the suburbs so conveniently near a Metro stop. The acoustics are stellar anywhere. I frequently purchase tickets far back to save a few dollars and still enjoy the show.

I am not aware that that particular orchestra played at Strathmore. If you check the Strathmore partners there is no mention of it. That does not mean that at some point in time it did not occur, it just means that I am... More

Actually, the is a great design for audiences. There are three seating choices--the Orchestra, the balcony and the side boxes. For the balcony and side boxes, you are looking down, not up. I personally prefer those rather... More
