The Phoenix Symphony plays a variety of classical music--and the location is right downtown within walking distance of major hotels and restaurants.

Great concert March 15 with Suk (Dvorjak's son-in-law) symphonic telling of a Bohemian fable and Brahms' Piano Concerto #2 (soloist was Fabiola Bedeni). Awesome orchestral sound, especially the bass section. Any performance attended has been well worth the time invested. A must do in Phoenix? Absolutely!

We have come a long way, baby! The facility is fine, and the musicians are superb. I cannot say the same about many of the patrons; I cringe when I see people wearing jeans or shorts to the symphony. No, I am not an elitist, but I am from California, and we dressed up for the symphony. Hey, Phoenix, how... More

We went to see the Phoenix Symphony doing mostly show tunes and big band music with solo accompaniment by Megan Helty. She was fantastic and the music selection was wonderful. Totally entertaining and fun.

We were there for a Broadway Review, featuring three experienced and talented Broadway performers, along with the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra. We plan to come again when visiting the area, and would be regulars if we lived near Phoenix.

We attended this sell-out event on New Year's Eve, 2013, with a Road Scholar group. The seats were comfortable, the acoustics were good in the lower level back of the venue, the lighting added to the performance, and the temperature was comfortable. The guest conductor talked and joked w/the audience, which was not at all what I expected at the... More

I took my daughters to a 1pm Christmas Eve showing of the Nutcracker, and have nothing but wonderful things to point out. The performance itself was outstanding, the venue warm and open, restrooms easily accessible, etc. The sound throughout is fantastic (I should know, we started in the top corner but our usher brought us front and center after intermission),...

Good sound, great venue. Parking was easy on Sunday not much harder during the weekday. 1 or 2 restaurants nearby. No signal outside after intermission. They have fun and wonderful visiting meastros. A real gem for the Phoenix area.

Excellent concert with Lang Lang on piano. Only downside is that the concert was too short. The venue was very nice and would recommend going if you like classical music.

The Phoenix Symphony has been in transition for a few years. Things ARE changing, and for the better. They are working to bring great music to a broader audience. Their John Williams/Steven Spielberg event is a great example.
