On Father's Day, we took my father to see the Cary Hoffman and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Frank Sinatra is Cary Hoffman's idol, and Cary took us through his own life experiences - experiences that were influenced by Frank Sinatra. The performance was fantastic. My father was thrilled with the entire performance and expressed that he would love to... More

My wife and I have been going to the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra for almost 50 years. They have many varied and wonderful programs so the choices are numerous and will satisfy any symphonic music taste. They also regularly have top quality soloists from all over the world. There are many solo performances on violin, piano, cello, and many other... More

Our entire family came here for a Christmas Performance and we enjoyed every second. It's not normal that teenagers are taken to a symphony with their parents and can genuinely say they enjoyed the entire performance! The theatre itself is also gorgeous!

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.
