I am actively involved with the Powell Symphony Hall. The entertainment, some shows are free are very inexpensive, are very exciting. If you are planning to visit Powell Symphony Hall on a visit to St. Louis, first check to see if they are not sold out.

Literally my favorite thing to do in STL! If you are lucky enough to be in town when the symphony is performing, grab a ticket and GO!! The Hall is simply stunning! I am a season ticket holder and have never had a bad experience there.

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.
