These folks recently debuted an acclaimed work at Carnegie Hall, and they are on more people's maps. But they have always had an exquisite sound. If I were richer and had time for it, I'd attend every performance, even Mahler <shudder>. The musical options are very varied and there are so many different kinds of subscriptions, times (the shorter, untuxed... More

I have been to lots of different show in this hall. Everything sounds nice. Even went to a swing dance there.

The sound is great, the symphony is solid, and the atmosphere worth the price of the tickets. In the entry hall there is a nice variety of amenities such as an espresso bar, a gourmet-grab-and-go restaurant, and a coat check -- all under one-of-a-kind Chihuly glass sculptures and soaring ceilings. Inside, there are several pre-order bars where you can arrange... More

The sound here is amazing. If there is a show the tickets can be pricey but worth if is something you are interested in. Plus there are Chihuly sculptures in the entry.

What an amazing place to hear live music. We went for Benaroya Hall for he first time for the Danny Elfman/Tim Burton "concert" and were blown away by the acoustics. We are not symphony fans but may become fans after the incredible sounds we heard. There's not a bad seat in the whole place.

Benaroya Hall is a wonderful venue for music. It is the Seattle Symphonies home base. If you have the chance go.

We attend the National Geographic lecture series every year in Benaroya Hall. Not a bad seat in the place, seriously! Comfy chairs in the upper balconies are my favorites. I even like climbing the stairs to get there instead of the elevator - it's a tradition.

Had an opportunity to visit for a show during date night with my wife. Had a wonderful time. The staff assisting here are excellent. They may be volunteers but they are polite and open to assist. Had excellent balcony seats centered, but realized that every seat is great. We actually bought tickets for another show and are gonna try out... More

The Hall is a lovely place for a concert or a lecture. We attend the National Geographic lecture series every year, and really enjoy atmosphere. The acoustics are good, and the seats are easy to see from, even from the top tiers. There are several restaurants outside the auditorium where you can eat before performances if you wish.
