My boyfriend and I attended the legend Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, concert yesterday at Heinz Hall. It was our first time visiting downtown Pittsburgh. The theater is really nice, well maintained and the seats are comfortable. The temperature inside was just right. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The inside is not overwhelmingly big which is great because you... More

Heinz Hall has been around forever, and if your in downtown Pittsburgh, you should make the effort to see this Performance Theater, because it's full of Pittsburgh history.

Saw a wonderful concert called Bach's Coffeehouse. The acoustics are great and this is a wonderful place to watch the symphony.

The lack of support symphonies receive today is a tragedy, but not one due to a lack of skill. My mother and I travelled to hear the symphony perform Singin in the Rain, my favorite movie of all! I was not disappointed! The hall itself was beautiful, inviting and intimate. The seats were very comfortable. And the staff was incredibly... More

Because we had some spare time on a Sunday afternoon, we decided to attend the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Heinz Hall. Wow! We sent an e-mail before we left home. We received an absolutely thorough response about directions from our hotel and what to expect. Because of the e-mail, we were able to save money by purchasing senior discount tickets... More

My wife and I visit Heinz Hall a couple of times a year to see a concert. First, it is so beautiful and ornate that you want to get there early just to take in the beauty of the place. Acoustically, it's phenomenal. See a concert there and you'll return many times.

Heinz Hall is a great place to see a show - there are no bad seats. It makes you feel like you are in an old time opera house like in Phantom of the Opera. Since it is so old there is always a line for the ladies restroom so plan ahead.

One of the best if not the best Broadway level theatre I have ever been in. Beauty of European level. A staff volunteer gave me a quick tour and then my son and I attended a lively evening with the Pittsburgh symphony Pops. Already planning my next visit. Truly a must see and experience. Convenient to walk from downtown hotels... More

This is such a beautiful venue for concerts and shows. The Pittsburgh Symphony is world class and the concerts never disappoint. We are lucky to have this beautiful hall and this amazing orchestra in Pittsburgh.

We attended the Kenny Loggins concert last night, and it was wonderful, not only due to the ageless Kenny and his remarkable band, but because the sound at Heinz Hall is perfection. Many other artists, such as "Chicago" have commented on the great acoustics in the middle of their performances. For Classical or Pop music, Heinz Hall consistently delivers great... More
