“BEAUTIFUL THEATER IN A BEAUTIFUL AREA! CLASS!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Saw the entire 2013 Season of the Monterey Symphony here - we LOVED every second of every performance! Comfortable seating with beautiful sound did full justice to the orchestra. Nice concessions too and ample parking. Fair ticket prices and great view from all areas. Always sit in front - have been DELIGHTED! Accomodating with views, preferences, etc. and I will resume ticket purchase soon as I'm ready to go back to enjoy more evenings here! THE BEST!

“Was hoping for better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

I heard the Monterey Symphony perform a Mahler Symphony there, and the acoustics were just dead. Poor Mahler ... he would not have been happy. I've not heard anything amplified in the hall ... might be better.

First time visit to see the 1964 - The Beatles Tribute. Nice hall with great sound and comfortable seating. Great place to see a show. Highly recommend.

“Good selection of concerts, beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Carmel's Sunset Cultural Center offers a wide selection of concerts and events. Best known for Carmel's annual Bach Festival, it also hosts smaller intimate concerts and symphony concerts. The seating is comfortable, and while it was totally refurbished and modified, the sound can be hit and miss.
