While the Seattle Symphony's home is at Benaroya Hall, the Seattle Philharmonic also perform here! The latest concert featured a rare and rousing performance of the Symphony No. 1 by Antal Dorati. The music demands note accuracy and intonation from all sections of the orchestra which this group accomplished with flair. In spite of the indifferent acoustics of the room,... More

I was recently here for the holidays, for the Holiday Pops show, and it was my first time. The space was beautiful and the musicians were amazing. The interior is modern with clean lines, but comfortable with a warm color palette. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting.

A beautiful environment for music, but the sound has disappointed my husband and I every time. Maybe our expectations have been too high--he attended so many Santa Fe Operas, I enjoyed Boston. But the acoustics have not been what we enjoy, regardless of our seating.

This is a wonderful place and I doubt if there is a bad seat in the house. The seat are comfortable with lots of room to spread out. No problem having a middle seat here as one is not crowded and can get up to visit the rest room and not disturb your neighbor. Excellent acoustics too.

Benaroya Hall is a must see. The Chihuly chandeliers in the lobby are amazing. And, if time allows seeing a performance in the Hall is well worth the time. The acoustics are wonderful and the hall itself is beautiful

I don't know how many times I have been to Benaroya, but each time has been the most Wonderful experience of Grace. From the beautiful wonder filled music of the Strings, to the incredible presentations of a band, each experience has been fantastic.

The Benaroya Hall's acoustics are so fantastic that one can hear a pin drop...on stage or anywhere in the hall which is slightly distracting when one is listening to the world class symphony orchestra or any other performance or presentation. It is a beautiful venue with excellent amenities and I would rather hear slightly too much than not enough. If... More
