I find Powell to be the perfect venue for the symphony because of its understated elegance that doesn't compete with the performance of the symphony. I wouldn't come to the building just to see the interior. Rather, pick a concert that fits your tastes and enjoy the entire experience.

The St. Louis Symphony has a majestic but welcoming venue in Powell Hall, a beautifully restored building with a gorgeous ceiling and great acoustics. The musicians under David Robertson love to make music, and the concerts are designed to honor the classics and introduce St. Louis to innovative new music as well. The lobbies are crowded during intermission, but lines... More

The performances always sound great. There are reasonably priced food and drink choices during the performance breaks. Bathrooms were clean. The people who work here are... More

The symphony played well along with the awe inspiring folk duo of The Indigo Girls. The bathroom facilities were clean and orderly given the number of people visiting, the drinks were not too expensive, and the seating... More
