Aesthetically is lovely and the orchestra is excellent. If only the acoustics were okay. It is otherwise a neat old hall of sort of Art Deco look and the iconic outdoor sign is pure Portland. The upper level seats are also very uncomfortable. Stay below.

We recently attended a Oregon Symphony concert with Lang Lang as the soloist. The concert was wonderful. The concert hall is a theater that has been preserved. It is huge and a bit worn, but it is great that Portland has been able to preserve it.

This is my favorite venue! I love the atmosphere and the columns. Can't wait to see another concert there! I've seen The Oregon Symphony, Alanis Morrisette, Ellie goulding and more there! I always have a blast!
