We attended a nicely produced pops concert here in January, 2017. Our first visit to this locale. The hall is magnificent. The concert itself was very nice.

The Seattle Symphony is a 1st rate symphony with a very talented musician group and conductor. For those who like to support the arts, their annual Gala is also 1st rate and not to be missed.

Absolutely amazing. I knew I would hear beautiful music, but I underestimated how great it would be to see the musicians interact with one another as they played. Truly a great experience. I was a little sad to see so few young people and kids there. It was really great.

You can create your own season as a subscriber and be eclectic in your choice of performances. Of note: The symphony was nominated for 3 Grammies and won one this year.

My grandson and I attended the performance of the Ninth Symphony by Beethoven. BenaRoya Hall is an outstanding venue - excellent acoustics and not a bad seat in the house. The hall was completely sold out. The instrumentalists were top notch. The 120-voice chorus was very impressive. My 17-year-old grandson who is musically inclined found the experience "fabulous," and I... More

I note that others have commented on the great experience they had at the Seattle Symphony. We have been going for a years and could not agree more. Benaroya Hall is a joy to experience, including the pre-concert eating opportunity by David and Co in the entrance hall. Last night we experienced Beethoven's 9th, including 4 soloist singers and the... More

I've been to the Seattle Symphony many times over the years and am yet to be disappointed. It's a great date night activity especially when combined with a dinner out downtown. Dress up some and have a good time!

You Seattle people don't realize what a gem you have in this Symphony! We attended the opening night of Handel's Messiah on 18 Dec 2015. And what a treat it was. We were able to acquire excellent seats in the Founder's Tier without having to pay a scalper (3rd party site) an exorbitant price. The view was a little stifled... More

One of my all time favorite activities. I truly Love the symphony, and always feel great appreciation for the Beautiful Space, as well as the wonderful music. It makes a great evening out , with others or alone. It doesn't matter, the music transports the listener each time.
