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

We tend to enjoy the 'Pops" at the Symphony, everything from the James Bond themes to the Beatles classics, from Star Wars and movie themes to the Paul Simon collection. This time we were there to celebrate the magic of Harry Potter.

We are regular visitors, tending towards the "Pops" events (such as the James Bond themes, or in this case the Harry Potter movies). It is always a pleasurable experience and leaves us wanting more.

We saw the Nutcracker last night after years of not seeing it. It was so beautiful. The gorgeous and traditional music was perfect but the contemporary costumes and sets were out of this world. The children were adorable and each character smiled throughout the scenes. It could not have been more enjoyable. Congratulations to the Phoenix Symphony and Ballet!!

We saw this show at the Virginia G. Piper Theater at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. What a beautiful theater it is! What amazing musicians that give their hearts and souls to their performances! With that said, we were somewhat disappointed in the overall performance. It was not the full symphony, but a smaller group of them and... More

I am relatively new to the Phoenix area and had the opportunity to attend my first Phoenix Symphony concert for their Holidays Pops. Symphony Hall in downtown Phoenix was awesome. We sat in the orchestra level towards the rear and the sound was perfect and we still had a clear view of the stage. The orchestra was amazing. I've attended... More
