“Alabama Symphony for New Year's Eve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I would highly recommend the Alabama Symphony for New Year's Eve. Every year they choose a composer and they do a wonderful job. The symphony with friends and a midnight toast is just the way to start the New Year!

Saw the orchestra play at the November coffee concert. Was a great experience that performed songs surrounding the theme of love. Very much enjoyed myself.

“Bravo! Brava!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

One of the finest, smaller symphony ensembles anywhere. Our band was invited to Carnegie Hall to perform in May, 2102. And a memorable performance it was. 700 symphony enthusiasts from Birmingham attended the concert (including my wife and I). One cannot do better when in Birmingham than to experience the Alabama Symphony (indoors or out-of-doors in the summer).

“A Birmingham Cultural Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Having lived in NYC for the past decade, we'd become accustomed to excellent classical music at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, but when we arrived in Birmingham we wondered if the Alabama Symphony would measure up. It does, superbly, in every way. We've enjoyed their consistently high quality performances in the acoustically and aesthetically wonderful Jemison Concert Hall, and were impressed with their recent well-received appearance at Carnegie Hall. A pair of season tickets to the Masterworks Series at ASO is our response to this mid-South musical gem.

“A Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

I have been attending at least 10 performances a year for the last few years, including their performance at Carnegie Center in NYC. They are a joy to listen to and a true treasure for Birmingham and Alabama. I was very proud to see them in NYC. They always put on a great performance. The energy in the audience is great as we all support the ASO. BRAVO!!!
