Awesome shows

Me and my wife went to see the nutcracker and it was awesome. The place is so cool to go to and they have great performances. Definitely worth the price.

I loved my seat, even though it was in the third tier, the view and sound were impeccable. Pitch Perfect!! Moving experience to hear music in such a pristine way.

We attended an afternoon concert with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Kimmel Center. The concert hall is magnificent, every seat is good, and the acoustics are great.

I attended an event atop of the center. The lights, food, plants and service were unbelievable! What is the Pyramid Club????

We visited this venue for two graduation ceremonies. Each time I was equally impressed with the architecture and beauty of the venue. There is no real bad seat in the house.

Had the pleasure of seeing the "Philly Pops" orchestra and chorus at the Verizon Hall and was literally transformed for a couple of hours by the beautiful music...aside from thoroughly enjoying the music, the Kimmel Center, itself, is a most beautiful building...when you "look up" you can see through the domed, glass windows...what a great building!

This is our first time here at the Kimmel Performance Center, Verizon Hall. It is amazing, we are so glad we came here early so we can walk around and take lots of pictures. The architecture is amazing! You can't help but look up at the grandeur of the glass roof. The Verizon Hall is perfect for music performance. Sarah... More

CAme from NYC to see Bernstein's Mass (only 4 performances) and was totally blown away by the physical facilities, as well as the performance. Great accoustics, great sight lines, very enthusiastic and attentive audience. Performers were all fantastic: Yannick the conductor is a dynamo of energy and creativity (never met him, just can tell from watching him conduct - and... More

I have only been in the main auditorium so I can't speak for the smaller venues within the building. Very nice venue and easy to see from any seat as far as I could see. Easy to get to on public transportation, but come early if you want dinner before a show. Restaurants near the facility fill up quickly.
