I have seen many performances here and it is by far one of my favorite venues. The architecture is beautiful. The acoustics are great. They have a variety of performers come through - symphony, comedians, rock stars. They serve snacks and alcohol can be consumed at your seat.

Saw Jim Gaffigan here, first time in Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. What a lovely place! Not a bad seat in the house, looking forward to seeing more shows here. So nice they bring great shows to downtown Portland

Conveniently located in downtown Portland, you're within close proximity to hotels, bars, restaurants and the food trucks. Make sure to look up and admire the beautiful European-inspired décor.

Classic, historic building with reasonably comfortable seats and decent acoustics. I have performed there, as well as seen many national and international artists perform. If you are in Portland OR, it is a must to check it out. Parking is located close by, and Broadway is a great street for browsing shops, restaurants, and finding a nice hotel.

I love this place! I go see the Oregon Symphony perform often. Although the volume could be higher on some of the amplification I still love watching shows there.

Beautiful theatre. We had seats on the mezzanine level which were comfortable and we had a wonderful view. Acoustics were good too. We enjoyed a fabulous evening of Harry Connick Jr and his band. Memorable.

I went here to see the movie Psycho on Halloween with the music provided live by the Oregon Symphony. I really enjoyed the show and the music as well the as the costumes a lot of people wore (including the conductor and some members of the symphony.) I also went for a Christmas program once. The shows were sold out... More

We have seen several concerts at this hall. The hall has great acoustics so the performances sound fabulous. We get tickets as early as possible since they tend to sell out. If you can get a seat in the forward balcony the view is fantastic. All seats have a good view, though. The hall is well maintained and the seats... More

The 'Schnitz' as it's known in Portland is one of the best places for concerts. It is the home of the Portland Symphony and we have attended various events here. One of our favorites this past year featured Disney movie theme songs played by the symphony as parts of the movie were shown on a huge screen. The hall is... More
