“Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised at the talent and how wonderful the experience is to hear the Symphony in person at the Fox. I have lived in NY and LA , been to each symphony performance and SSO was Excellent ! Well worth it!!

I had an evening of pure harmony and delight while visiting. Elegant, refined, and brilliant! I'm avid on classical music and would recommend this to anyone.

“awesome music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The St Louis Symphony Orchestra is impressive, world class, superior entertainment. My only complaint? Where are there so few young people attending performances? Is it the cost? Powell Hall, inside, is elegant.

“No better entertainment in the Saint Louis area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The world renowned St Louis symphony is like no other, when it comes to drawing its audience in.

They offer diverse experiences, with a wide range of concert and film series - something for everyone (for all ages).

The venue is second to none. Just down the street from the Fox Theater, this old vaudeville house is elegant and grand.

The music you will enjoy from the SLSO will keep you coming back for more. We buy series tickets, and choose which concerts to attend.

Go see and hear the St Louis Symphony Orchestra - it's an experience you'll never forget!!

“Never disappointed with the performance or the venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We are many year season subscribers and we have yet to be disappointed with an event. We attend 12-16 performance per year, the latest was the 2012 Gala, and we are almost always thrilled with the evening. The Symphony is excellent and David Robertson is always a treat. The pre-concert lectures are a MUST for music enthusiasts for all regular series performances. The live movie soundtracks have been a special treat the last few years. Some of the more "modern" pieces presented can be a challenge to appreciate but the orchestra always delivers an excellent interpretation. Virtuoso soloists, both Guests and Residents, always bring their best when contributing. We look forward to each upcoming performance.
