Our party of four got tickets on the grass for the ABBA concert - a Swedish band replicating ABBA. And they did a passable job - some songs like the original, others less so. Maybe it was the "yet" lag. Nevertheless, I'd do it again because it was a well paced, entertaining 2 hour+ show. The setting is impeccable. Right... More

For locals and visitors alike, the San Diego Symphony Summer Pops concerts are a unique opportunity to hear and see our symphony in a beautiful and casual setting. Ticket prices allow everyone to enjoy the event depending on the experience you want. Lawn seating is the most affordable and can be the most fun. Bring a picnic in a small... More

The SD Symphony sis a great job with their July 4th Celebration concert. They exceeded my expectation as a terrific orchestra…I wasn't as thrilled with the vocalist that they chose for the concert however BUT I still look forward to seeing the Symphony again.

Really beautiful older music hall. For symphonies, you lose a lot of visibility range setting up front on the main floor but the acoustics are still very nice. The San Diego Symphony is just awesome

I attended most of the City Lights performances this season. I was also so pleased at the Ballet performances for 2013/2014. The San Diego Symphony is more than just classical music. There are great Ballet performances, concerts by well known artists, both for older and younger audiences. The Hall is spectacular and I believe the best venue in San Diego... More

Family and I attended the James Bond concert with Sheena Easton and had a great time. The concert hall is great and all the seats have a good view. The also have camera's roaming amongst the symphony and shown on TVs so you can watch as well. The drinks at the bar were expensive, but the cost goes towards the... More

San Diego Symphony gets better every season. The musicians I've encountered are friendly, approachable, and *fantastic* on stage -- Summer Pops is truly a must in San Diego! Why? - Hear symphonic music outdoors with the San Diego skyline backdrop - Watch our city fade into sparkling lights while the music takes you to places unknown - Enjoy a cool... More

I was able to attend the San Diego Symphony's performance at Embarcadero Park this past weekend. The Symphony offers these concerts throughout the summer and they are wonderful! I would definitely try to attend again if I were in the area. One note: as these concerts are along the waterfront and end after dark, I would dress warmly as the... More

It's one of my joys in life to listen to live music. I became a San Diego Symphony regular four years ago. I remember walking into the Copley Symphony Hall and being enchanted with the restored Rococo theater. It was a delightful surprise after entering through a modern Symphony Tower Building. I have enjoyed their repertoire over the years, and... More
