“Our wonderful director Eckart Preu just signed for more years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

He takes us out of our comfort zone into really great music, we like the classic series, but the Pops are fun too. Summer concerts are a gift to the city.

“Music at the park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

Beautiful! Have enjoyed it every time we have attended. Nice variety of musical scores. One of the best for Spokane. A must if you are given the oppurtunity.

“Low End Provincial - with World Class Attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Spokane in general, is a solid middle class town with few arrogant social cliques. The Spokane Symphony is not so much about the love of music as it is about reinforcing class distinctions. Regular people will be tolerated, but never made to feel totally welcome.

TIckets are very expensive, by Spokane standards. Despite some of the most annoying attitudes in the rregion, the actual products are "low end provincial".

Tip: Spokane is home to number of different Universities.Music Lovers can find exceptional music programs, for substantially less money by patronizing offerings at the local Universities

“So So”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

It's okay for a small symphony, but doesn't compare to larger ones.
