5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

One the best venues for classical music anywhere! Seattle symphony truly is a treasured gem of the city and you should stop in and listen to a show if you are in town.

“Spectacular accoustics!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I have been to several performances at Benaroya Hall from full orchestra to choirs to soloists and I can assure you the accoustics are worth the price of admission!

“Classical Music Never Sounded So Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

If you get the chance, snag a seat in Benaroya's box (he only has it for opening night), preferably in the seats closest to the stage -- it's a fabulous vantage point to watch guest pianists as you are up enough, and forward enough to be able to see their hands.

“Top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We usually try to make a special occasion show like at Christmas time but I have also visited when my friend, the flutist, played with the Symphony. We like the box seats on the sides so we can see down on the stage but all the seats are excellent. The sound system is one of the best, from single performances to large groups. This has been a great addition to Seattle since its opening.

“A Great Symphony Hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Benaroya Hall is a Seattle classic. It is the home of the Seattle Symphony, and offers a fine selection of concerts with maestro from many different orchestras. Marvin Hamlish has been directing the Pops orchestra for the past 2 seasons. It is well worth seeing and enjoying a concert.
