music place to be

The Philadelphia orchestra never sounded so good. The only place to listen to classical music. Try not to get all the way up to the top of the hall.

Don't know why I never about submitting a review. The Kimmel Center has been my place of employment for the past 14 years almost. They have treated me great from day one. Excellent place to work I will have to say. Great place to experience art. Orchestra Music, Philadanco, Chamber Music. And the list goes on. Love coming to work... More

The day I arrived in Philly, it was decided to take in the Lion King. OMG. What a treat. It was out of this world. The sounds, the sights, the talents - simply awesome. I had never seen this performance, and was not disappointed. The Kimmel Center has a huge lineup of upcoming events, and I definitely recommend adding this... More

I went here for a white coat ceremony and was quite impressed with the elegant design of the building. I'm not sure what other performances are offered here, but it was a nice visit.

The Kimmel Center has the best acoustics. Dear to my heart because one of my best clients invited me to their wedding on the roof of the Kimmel Center.
