“The Staff is the Best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We booked Lyle Lovett tickets at this venue. When I ordered I assumed the seats behind the music would be as good as in front. Plus I would get a different prospective of the wonderful band. I love the instruments and would feel more a part of the experience. Well that I did but the acoustics were the WORST. I sat through as long as I could before asking for a different seat. The usher was very helpful and lead me to the right person to help me.(in the mean time he radioed I was coming) When I reached that point another usher knew my plight, went to his boss and made my request for me.(While tagging me along). I had to go back to retrieve my husband and on returning there was a couple in those seats. I looked to my 2nd usher and he already had a much better set of seats in mind.
I was very pleased and down right funky about the music now and the remaining time was the greatest.

“Beautiful Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

My husband and I recently went to the Schermerhorn for the first time to see Singin' in the Rain - the symphony played the score while the movie was also being shown. It was fabulous! The interior is beautiful, there are really no bad seats in the house and the acoustics are fantastic. Many types of events are held here, not just classical music like you might think. Even though the center is located right in the heart of the city, there are several parking garages nearby. The staff makes sure you can find your way around, and there are very large, very clean restrooms to accommodate the crowds. Most of the events held here are rather pricy, but it is well worth saving up for a special occasion for this experience.
