Heinz Hall is a great place to listen to a concert. Pittsburgh was fortunate to have two former "movie palaces" in the heart of downtown beautifully restored and preserved for contemporary use. Heinz Hall, the former Penn Theater, was totally refurbished during the 1970's to serve as a home for the Pittsburgh Symphony. The Heinz family very generously supported the... More

We were really surprised when we got there. I was expecting a museum about Heinz products. Boy, I was surprised. Their building was 7 floors, with all kinds of history about Pittsburg. We were there about 3 hours and they were starting to close for the evening. We had to rush at the end to see anything. To really see... More

I went many years ago to Heinz Hall for a concert. The hall is absolutely, amazingly beautiful. I was taken aback by the beauty. The concert sounded wonderful in the hall. I would love to go back someday soon.

Just attended the 2014 Happy Together Tour and had such a wonderful time. Enjoyed the concert so much, and was able to meet and shake hands unexpectedly with Mark Farner after the show. Heinz Hall is so beautiful! Everything sparkles and shines, and employees look and behave so professional. The bar area is eye catching, and staircase is so grand,... More

We got to visit Heinz Hall for the first time last night to see Megan Hilty sing with the Pittsburgh Symphony. The show was great and the venue was stunning. Heinz Hall is one of those "grand dames" that stands the test of time. I especially liked the more spacious than usual seating found there. It was easy access to... More

They don't come much classier and beautiful than Heinz Hall. Whether you are there for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra or Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the sound is great, the sightlines are all good and the seating is comfortable. As a big guy I appreciate seats that are comfortable. There are nice service bars for pre- and mid-concert refreshment,... More

Heinz Hall is a classic theater, built decades ago with the type of opulence. The acoustics are amazing. When you enter the lobby and look around, you will feel the majesty of turn of the 20th Century architecture and style.

I have sat in the front and in the last row, and the show is good any way you look at it. The place was totally restored to its original gilded age version, and the spaces are visually pleasing and sumptuous. We were sitting in the last row when Tony Bennett sang a cappella, not amplifed, and we heard him... More

Attended the Mozart festival finale with the symphony orchestra, chorus and opera singers. A truly outstanding performance with high quality performances all around. The theater interior is a beautiful setting that surprises after the plain exterior that greets you on arrival. Only caution is that if you are tall or have long legs you are going to find the seating... More
