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

I tend to visit Powell Hall during the holidays for the Pops concerts, that's my favorite time when it's decorated. I've never had a bad seat here and I've sat in the balcony too. 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

What a great place for an evening of music! This venue hosts warm and inviting sounds, and my particular concert was absolutely phenomenal. 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

Loved it all! The symphony hall is an Art Deco gem, saved by a caring community. Wonderful acoustics and talented symphony made the evening a treasure. Bravo!

My wife and I came here for Ben Folds's performance with the St. Louis Symphony. The concert was epic and was made even more so by the venue. We'll definitely return for another concert.

The acoustics are phenominal however the building interior is a little worn... Needs a little spucing up so it can restored to its original glory - looks a little shabby right now (however, the sound is NOT affected!)

Excellent, you do not have to buy the most expensive tickets since the sound is fabulous in all areas. They have a variety of music from the orchestra to rock n roll classics and more. http://www.stlsymphony.org/aboutus/powellhall.aspx

We are big Ben Folds fans and traveled five hours to St. Louis to take in his show with the St. Louis Symphony. Powell Hall's interior is stunning and meticulously maintained. The acoustics are just beautiful, especially when Ben conducts his sing alongs. We had 7th row center seats, including one on the aisle and felt like we had ample... More

Just a short note on how great the show was today, "Simply Sinatra"! A wonderful show that was relaxing and so enjoyable. The singer was so "Modest" and yet so special. I am not a great "Sinatra" fan, but his selections of Sinatra songs was most "Touching". The song "My Way" and so many others was so special. The huge... More
