“Phila. Orchestra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Fantastic seats, great performance - beautiful building -
New Conductor was outstanding and the informal discussion after the performance was worth staying for. It doesn't appear that there could be a bad seat in the house. We were about 8th row dead center - a memorable evening.

“Mozart in January”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

There is no bad seat in the Kimmel Center and if you are a subscriber which is well worth the cost you get an incredible discount on additional tickets that you purchase for friends and family.
