I've been to many events here an always prefer classical groups to rock, jazz or other louder styles. Orchestra seats are the worst in louder settings. race to the top of the building for the best sound and view. It is a nice, ornate building harkening back to the 20th century.

The building has been beautifully restored and I have never had a bad seat, regardless of where I was seated. We love attending events at the Schnitz.

Love this venue- gorgeous inside and out in the heart of downtown Portland, if you are going to see a concert or performance this is the place as it is large but still gives you an intimate feel.

This concert hall holds a variety of different events, and each seat in the house has a great view of the stage. I would recommend seeing an event just for the experience of being in this place.

I've been to the Schnitz for two concerts now (Bryan Ferry and Steely Dan), and have not found the accoustics particularly good. While there is a good view of the stage from every seat, 'rock' music doesn't reverberate around the concert hall very well. I'm sure classical music would be really good in here, but the lack of accoustic panels... More

Wow! We saw Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo here and it was a great venue! The concert hall is beautifully restored, comfortable, and we loved our seats in the mezzanine section. The show was delightful!

Unlike the dreadful Keller the Schnitz has good acoustics and views from anywhere. We have attended many events there and are never disappointed in the venue.

I went there with my 6 year old daughter and two friends to the Gospel Christmas concert. The Hall is located in downtown Portland so there's plenty to do before and after the show. It's been remodeled and restored and although I don't know what it looks like before, it is still beautiful.

Not being musically inclined I determine to take my wife to a Valentine's Concert highlighting Storm Large. From the onset we were impacted by not just the joy of the Oregon Symphony but also a vibrant, virtuoso who sang through a multitude of styles; jazz, musicals, rock, and hard rock. No matter your music style, I would highly suggest a... More
