As I've never been to the symphony before, this was a real treat. The venue is great, and I imagine that all the seats would be good.

I would highly recommend the Alabama Symphony for New Year's Eve. Every year they choose a composer and they do a wonderful job. The symphony with friends and a midnight toast is just the way to start the New Year!

Saw the orchestra play at the November coffee concert. Was a great experience that performed songs surrounding the theme of love. Very much enjoyed myself.

One of the finest, smaller symphony ensembles anywhere. Our band was invited to Carnegie Hall to perform in May, 2102.

One cannot do better when in Birmingham than to experience the Alabama Symphony (indoors or out-of-doors in the summer).

Having lived in NYC for the past decade, we'd become accustomed to excellent classical music at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, but when we arrived in Birmingham we wondered if the Alabama Symphony would measure up. It does, superbly, in every way. We've enjoyed their consistently high quality performances in the acoustically and aesthetically wonderful Jemison Concert Hall, and were... More

I have been attending at least 10 performances a year for the last few years, including their performance at Carnegie Center in NYC. They are a joy to listen to and a true treasure for Birmingham and Alabama. I was very proud to see them in NYC. They always put on a great performance. The energy in the audience is... More

Like most small symphonies, the Alabama Symphony struggled to remain relevant. It almost disappeared, but has come back strong with a group of talented musicians. Their concerts are always well attended and so is the pops series.

I've never been disappointed by a performance. They perform both classical and contemporary pieces, and sometimes offer free events at the park.

We were fortunate to be able to enjoy a concert by the Alabama Symphony Orchestra where they were joined by LeAnn Rimes. They are very good.
