Excellent theatre which should be used more often than it is. Excellent acoustics and decent seating. Although on this date which was a showing of "Singing in the Rain" with orchestra accompaniment the air was warm and stuffy until intermission and then it improved although i noticed the lobby was nice and cool and comfortable for some reason. Which helped... More

While on vacation, we attended the Symphony's tribute to The Music of Queen. Who would have thought we would be rocking in our seats and the aisles. What impressed me the most was the fans of the symphony!! I have to say ..." Phoenix loves it's symphony"! Even though I have visited Benaroya Hall in Seattle for holiday events, I... More

What fun. Hearing an excellent orchestra with guest conductor and singers/musician play the music of Queen. Clearly 1/3 of the people were first time to Symphony Hall. Great. Orchestra's like other cultural activities need to attract new audiences. This is a good job of doing so. Also, well managed and lovely venue. Parking was pretty easy too. We'll be at... More

I'm always looking for new things to do that don't break the bank. It's a great date night with the husband and my daughter and I have even done girls nights here. The symphony is really fantastic. Plus I always feel like I'm getting a little culture when I go :)

One of the best parts of the Christmas season is you can be a kid again and nobody seems to care. You can indulge yourself in things you like to do and not be considered selfish. On a recent visit to Phoenix my family and I treated ourselves to Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet danced by Arizona Ballet with the music performed... More

The Symphony Hall was easy to reach, comfortable in atmosphere and seating, and superb in acoustics. I heard four piano concertos there, and in only one was the soloist unable to adjust his sound to lead the orchestra (and that was his own fault). The other three revealed a perfect acoustical balance. During intermissions, the gift shop proved absolutely a... More

I went to this wonderful concert performed by the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra. They play classic and contemporary music. Also, there was a champagne toast, nice experience.

For the first time, the Phoenix Symphony offered at 4 p.m. performance on New Year's Eve. After a leisurely lunch, friends and I drove to the beautiful venue for my first experience with the symphony for New Year's Eve. The music was perfect for the occasion: fun, rousing, sing-along, through the ages and years, appropriate for the turning of an... More

The Texas Tenors did a three day engagement in Phoenix backed up by the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra. The singing was good, the symphony had a rich and full sound, the conductor was part of the show with witty mannerisms. The Boyz sang their hearts out and spent considerable time engaging the audience. For $30 it was a wonderful evening out.... More

Wen attended the Phoenix Symphony New Year's Eve presentation for the second year in a row while visiting over the holidays from Seattle. We've done the same in Seattle and it was very typical and epic. However the Phoenix Symphony has outdone itself with the last two year's shows doing Pop and Show Tunes, some classical music, rock and roll... More
