We have been to the Seattle Symphony many times and have always found the quality of the musicianship to be excellent. We used to live on the East Coast and we have enjoyed the Seattle Symphony's performances as much as anything we heard in NYC.

My friend is one of the sopranos in the symphony chorale. I get the pleasure of hearing the folks perform pieces I miss from everyday music. Now, I've heard better around the world, but for the area. This is a great group. The conductor is meticulous and it shows in the group performance.

We are season ticketholders for good reason. We used to live in San Francisco and enjoyed that world-class symphony. Seattle can hold its own with the Seattle Symphony, refreshed by the arrival of French Conductor Ludovic Morlot as Music Director.

Wonderful organization. Congrats on the Grammy nominations! I wish I lived downtown so I could go more often.

Comfortable seat with a fantastic view of the stage, reasonably priced ticket and intermission refreshments. The orchestra were very good, conducted by Jeff Tyzik who while being an excellent conductor, also had a good rap pour with the audience.

We decided to go last minute and got great seats at a fantastic price. Go early to the ticket window and ask for last minute availability.

We live in a small town in Ireland and get few opportunities to attend the symphony. My husband is a huge fan of classical music so we seized this opportunity. Ticket pieces were reasonably priced and the ticket lady was so helpful. It was an amazing night and we got to see a brilliant Russian pianist ... Played Tchikovski Piano... More

After you enter the area for ticket holders, across the lobby of the symphony hall and down the long nearly lifeless hallway on the opposite side of the building (the west side), there is a room at the end of the hall that used to be a private space for donors and the like that is now a wonderful restaurant....

The third season for Musical Director Ludovic Merlot and an orchestra that is now recognized as among the best in the country. They are blessed with one of the best halls in the country. The repertoire leans toward Mr. Merlot's native France, but is as varied as any musical taste could demand. The world's top solists and orchestras, as well... More

I'm a former season subscriber. Now go to various concerts and special events. Newish conductor, new music and old favorites. A must visit to Seattle to see the main hall and Symphony if you have time.
