We went to a symphony and had great sound even though our group had several locations in the hall. Beautiful inside and great staff. There is also some great snack locations within the hall.

This is a wonderful venue. The acoustics are perfect. Benaroya Hall is a very comfortable place to listen and enjoy. Parking is simple and the bus line comes right to the front door. We went to hear the Gloaming gents who are a mix of folk traditions from Ireland, it was a wonderful night of music.

As a bass chorale singer, I had the opportunity to fulfill one of my 55 Exciting Lifetime Goals by singing a Mozart Mass with a Chorale at Benaroya. The green room may be pedestrian, but the view from the stage of the symphony hall is rewarding. The surprise to me was the lighting on stage, that is, the brightness so... More

This was my first visit and I was impressed. We parked in the underground garage and used the elevator to the lobby. There is a place to grab something to eat before you enter the lobby. The lobby is spacious and there are chairs to use while you are waiting. They also offer free coffee and tea. There is wine... More

Benaroya Hall is a wonderful venue which features the Seattle Symphony and guest Musicians performing in fabulous concerts. Tonight we enjoyed the POPS program with the music of George Gershwin. The Symphony orchestra played the music Of Gershwin in a wonderful variety of musical pieces. Special guest performances by Baritone Doug Labrecque and Pianist Jon Nakamatsu. We enjoyed every moment... More

Always nervous about hearing "the best" but this music hall does seem to have the best acoustics. Just lovely all the way around. It was easy to pay attention to the performance because it was so comfortable with the surroundings.

The acoustics here are fantastic. The seats are comfortable and the lobby is light and bright. Benaroya is one of the best venues to hear music -- vocal, instrumental, orchestral, piano...you name it. There are two halls. The Nordstrom concert hall upstairs is a lovely, more intimate space with the same fantastic acoustics. Restroom tip: the upper level restrooms are... More
