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.

Beautiful music in a beautiful and historic space with enough variety to appeal to the whole family! Whether you live in Saint Louis or are visiting for a short time, don't miss a trip to Powell Hall. I suppose the phrase "Live at Powell Hall" is usually pronounced with a long letter i, but I like to substitute a short... More

St Louis has a cultural gem in the orchestra. A busy 9 month season. Lovely concert hall. A varied concert schedule. Try it!
