St. Louis is very fortunate to have such a talented and accessible symphony at its disposal! I haven't been in a while, yet have always enjoyed myself, even though classical isn't what I listen to on my iPod! Powell Symphony Hall is absolutely gorgeous and the acoustics are very good. If you haven't been in a while, or classical isn't... More

The soloists were fantastic, the conductor is enthusiastic, and the theatre is sublime. It was a great experience.

One of the great benefits of the SLSO is their willingness to present alternative entertainment options on their audiences. I loved the incredible presentation of the symphony, its chorus and soloist of the music to the movie Gladiator.

Steven Jarvi has a great rapport with the audience and obviously with his orchestra. We attended the Macy's Holiday Celebration and the chorus, soloist and orchestra were outstanding. Even if they were so-so, seeing them in Powell Hall decorated for Christmas would make it seem wonderful. If you get an opportunity to go, don't miss it.

This is a world class symphony orchestra. The city should be proud to have them. Definitely go hear them if you have the evening available.

At the end they even offered us wine. This is my best experience... More
