From Mozart to Michael Jackson, you can hear it all at the CPO. Lots of POP classics, great musicians, excellent guest performers. Great place to spend an evening.

“Solid performances”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Lots of different kinds of performances, done classically and professionally. Really looking forward to the AC/DC tribute and Handel's Messiah later in the year.

“One of the top venues in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great orchestra performing in one of the most acoustically perfect concert halls in the world. Don't be put off by the 1980 decor, this classic little shoebox hall is intimate and has an acoustic quality that ranks it in the top 3 halls in North America.
