Attended 'Salute to Vienna' as a family of 5 on New Years Day. Really enjoyed the interior architecture, will call was relatively fast and the ushers were helpful. Acoustics were great and we were able to hear everything from the balcony. They also allow you to bring snacks and drinks to your seat which is great with children in tow.... More

All the seats are good. The sound is great. There is paid parking nearby. Go with the $5 dollar garage it is not far and the best deal. Several good places to eat nearby. Great date night. Not just for old people. Good mixed crowd.

San Diego's Fox Theater, a grand 1929 movie palace that opened a month before the onset of the Great Depression, had become a pit stop for touring musicals by the 1970s. In 1986, the San Diego Symphony purchased the building, carefully restored it to its Spanish rococo glory, and turned into into a concert hall. More recently, a handsome wooden... More

We subscribed to the 7 concert mini-package, and have been enjoying them each month. This symphony has world class guest performers and a world class conductor. Our seats are mid orchestra and the sound is very good. For those of you who have never been to the symphony, I encourage you to stretch your musical experience and add it to... More

Came here on a Saturday evening and had great seats (Row Q) at very reasonable prices ($34). Programme included the West coast premiere of a composition by Judd Greenstein and it was an additional bonus to be able to chat with Mr Greenstein during the interval. Usually not a fan of "modern" music, but his "Change" composition was highly unusual... More

The last concert of the year was held on Labor Day weekend at the marina. You looked out on the water as they played. They had a fireworks display at the end. Dinner and drinks were available and you could also bring your own dinner. They had small tables set up to eat. A really well organized show.

We went to the SD Symphony summer pops rock and roll show on Friday evening. The venue is amazing. The sun setting over the bay, beautiful boats passing by, and even a battleship passed us by on the water. The weather was perfect for a summer evening concert. You can get there early with your picnic dinner or buy food... More

This was a perfect evening for my wife and myself. Was so impressed with the music on the bay as we watched in awe of the instruments and the people playing them. A must do!

We went to see Burt Bacharach last Sunday - our first visit since we moved here in May. I purchased seats and pre-parking online the week before - picked two seats in the Cabaret II section on the bay side. The venue was well organized. We were directed to the parking lot; one of the attendants went to the booth... More

Picture yourself…it’s sunset…the air is warm…you’re sitting either sitting at a table or in the grandstand overlooking San Diego Bay…the cool breeze gently wafting. As you enjoy for dinner/appetizer or a beverage, you view boats in the bay, the Midway just over the top of the stage, and to the right are boats in their slips. All the while tranquil... More
