This is the coolest building in Amarillo. I saw the symphony here and it was wonderful! The sound was outstanding, and the shape of the concert hall inside is a masterpiece.

The Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts is a comfortable place to watch and listen to Plays and concerts. It is a place you can dress up for and enjoy a relaxed evening.
