We've been to this incredible concert every one of the 16 years they've been performing it! A truly joyous and spiritual Christmas experience. The Oregon Symphony and local choir voices blend into an uplifting sound. The theater is specactularly renovated to the rich, old theater style. Every seat is a good one.

Won a ticket to a show and it was great! The venue was just the right size for a small group. The restaurant service was good and food was yummy. Enjoyed some cocktails before the show and was able to get a 'to-go' cup to bring a drink to the show!

This was such a delightful performance to take our six-year-old granddaughter to; she knew all the songs and loved dressing up in her favorite Disney costume - Brave! The live singers complimented the orchestra perfectly along with the big screen excerpts from a lot of the Disney classics! Such a magical night! Get your children and Go if you can... More

Attached to the Heathman Hotel and a very good live concert Hall. Working with the Portland Symphony on a Pop's date and they are talented, inviting and professional. Concert hall is a good hall for live music.

It's a gorgeous venue and has great sound. The seats can be a bit tricky on the mezzanine and balcony for tall people though.

You won't see metal shows here, but if you can catch a favorite performer here, it's something you shouldn't miss. The acoustics and architecture are stunning. It's a little stuffy--but I roll that into the fancy atmosphere. Even seeing A Perfect Circle (normally I see Symphonies) was stellar.

This historic building was a legitimate theater back in the Vaudeville days, then a movie theater, then a rock concert venue, then a dilapidated wreck. Fortunately, it was purchased by the city and renovated into part of the downtown Performing Arts Center. The building is restored to its former beauty, and it is really a sight! It is the home...

Acoustics are fair. Sight lines leave much to be desired. If you can get or afford the dress circle seats they are the best.

More Paris than New York, and Portland's cultural best. We live an hour away and still attend every lecture and concert at the "Schnitz" we possibly can. Go, and be illuminated!

A lovely place to enjoy the Oregon Symphony Orchestra - I am sure any live performance there would be wonderful
