It can't get better than the songs of the Beatles accompanied with the Philharmonic Orchestra! Any seat in this house is well worth it, the music vibrated your soul!

We came to see a Jazz Concert here and really enjoyed it. The seats were great and the staff friendly. I wish the bar on the main floor was better equiped as it became quite crowded close to showtime.

They offer free tours at 1:00pm. It's a great behind the scenes look at this beautiful building. Once a month they offer a free short Organ concert as part of the tour as well.

Due to Huricane Arthur, the outdoor Pops Independence concert at the mall was moved to the Kimmel Center. What a beautiful venue!!! The building is glorious and a wonder to behold. There are even seats to sit in BEHIND the orchestra. Don't miss a chance to hear a concert in this lovely hall.

We went and saw Evita, buying our tickets 3 weeks prior to the show. We were concerned about being able to see the stage and did all the research on their website, trying to figure out what would be the best seat for the seats that were left. We ended up with seating in the balcony all the way on... More

I attended the organ day today at Verizon Hall. It was an interesting event with various instrumental groups playing with the organ. At one point, they had a large chorus singing opera pieces. I was appalled at the sound. It reminded me of an old hi-fi with the treble turned all the way up. Compared to the Met Opera House... More

We visited the Kimmel Center for the Perfoming Arts in March for an orchestra performance by the Greater Princeton Youth Orchestra. We were very impressed by the acoustics of this venue.
