My wife and I went here again last night to see the Seattle Symphony do all the music for Disney's Fantasia 2000, while the movie played in the background. The program was absolutely fantastic and kids and adults alike obviously loved it. I would highly recommend seeing it if it returns. Made us seniors feel like kids again...o.k., maybe not... More

Just a magnificent hall to experience. The look, the feel and the sound just engulf you and create an experience that begs you to return again and again. This is the home of the Seattle Symphony and has a main hall as well as a smaller secondary hall.

I've had the privilege of seeing a number of performances in Benoroya Hall (not just classical performances) including: The Seattle Symphony Tom Cruise Speaking Organ Concert Trey Anastasio + Symphony It's a wonderful space. The acoustics are top notch and the design is one of the very best interiors in Seattle in my opinion. Highly recommended.

We went to one of the shows especially designed for kids. (The Teddy Bears picnic) It was held in the recital hall, which is the smaller of the two halls. It was excellent. The staff went all out before the event to put on arts and crafts for the kids, and there was musicians there to let the kids play... More

Saw a Tribute to Ray Charles here. It was a wonderful show. Acoustics are usually good here, but we ended up moving seats at the intermission (from the left side to something more in the center) because we just couldn't hear the singer. We could hear better after the move. Benaroya Hall is a beautiful venue with lots of nearby... More

The lobby to Benaroya Hall is very beautiful and elegant. Excellent acoustics inside, and you can see and hear from every seat.

Saw another live performance today-- Preservation Hall Jazz Band. It was great, but I've come to the conclusion that the performance hall has some built in reverberation. It's not too bad, but it's there. Thankfully, PHJB did not add a bunch of reverb, so it was clear. But, today just confirmed that performers who use reverb, based I've heard earlier,... More

A large, comfortable, acoustically excellent concert hall. Actually, two concert halls, on the lower level a large hall for symphony, ballet, etc. Upstairs a smaller hall for chamber music. It has the added advantages of a parking garage attached and it is across the street from the excellent restaurant, Wild Ginger if you do not wish to eat on the... More

The absolute right venue to enjoy the timeless classical masterpieces or some of the more modern concerts. Benaroya Hall has something for every taste in music or arts. We saw Mozart's great masterpieces and it didn't disappoint. The dress code is relaxed, you won't see a lot of black tie attires. Parking can be around $18-25 in the Hall's parkade,... More
