Using the light rail makes getting downtown effortless. We went to hear the Phoenix Symphony & guest violinist Jennifer Frautschi perform Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 2. If you feel the valley does not offer enough culture, then you are just not looking in the right place or are twisted a little to tight. Moving here from the Washington DC area,... More

We took a family trip to the Symphony to celebrate a birthday in May, it's probably THE most affordable thing we have done as a family this year, the tickets are about $11 each, FRONT ROW. The symphony was wonderful. The show we saw also featured some acrobats and performers. We could not have been more happy or impressed with... More

The tribute to the Rolling Stones was fantastic and we were able to park across the street. Do yourself a favor and grab a bite or a drink at one of the local places after the show to let traffic clear.

Easy access and great sound coupled with very comfortable seating and ample leg room make this a great concert location....parking can be a slight challenge.

Every time I came to this place I cannot help but marvel at how this place and the musicians have to depend on donations to stay in business. The Symphony Hall is right in the center of downtown Phoenix which the city had spent years to vitalize (I think they call it re-vitalize but I have never seen it vitalized... More

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
