The St. Louis Symphony is just amazing! I went to their Lord of the Rings show a couple years ago & I was so blown away! It is def not to be missed! The hall itself is just GORGEOUS, I couldn't stop looking at the ceiling! I highly recommend seeing one of their shows it is SO worth your time... More

A wonderful building with great acoustics. There are many different programs for many different musical tastes. I have never been disappointed in anything I have attended at Powell.

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 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

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!)
