I've been to the Benaroya Hall a few times to see the Seattle Symphony. It is an ideal location in the center of downtown. Rows A-E are too close. F-AA are ideal in the middle, left, or right lower sections. The balcony is a bit far for my eyes - but the sound is great. The private and semi-private balconies... More

I've been attending concerts in the Mark S. Taper Hall for years. No bad seats (included handicapped seating) or obstructed views. The sound quality is amazing no matter where you sit Also have attended lectures and music events upstairs in the Ilsa Nordstrom Hall (more intimate venue). Check out the two Chilhuly chandeliers in the lobby and the gift shop... More

Updated venue with good acoustics, friendly staff, and a decent layout. Went to three separate events here over two days. Spacious seating, with plenty of leg room even for a tall person (I'm 6'4"). Close to the Convention Center and hotels in the area.

I love going to the Seattle Symphony, they always have different things going on and different genres. (The Sir Mix a Lot one was hillarious!) I think it's also grown & encourages people of all ages to attend, which is nice to see

What a fine place to hear music. There are actually two concert halls in this complex. The large one is for the symphony and the smaller one works for more intimate events like the Seattle Reporatory Jazz Ensemble. Both halls are super well designed accoustically. The two Chihuly glass chandilliers are great to check out too.

I had the opportunity to see the Seattle Symphony Orchestra perform a Pixar compilation of the music and clips of its most beloved movies. It was a beautiful and memorable event being able to experience some of the most celebrated scores of Pixar's movies. If you have a chance, GO!

One of my favorite venues in Seattle for top quality classical performers and readings by my favorite writers. Benaroya is also at a great location with wonderful restaurants within walking distance for meals before or after. Parking is reasonably priced and there is easy access to I-5.
