An absolutely magnificent music venue with exceptional acoustics and comfort. I have seen numerous concerts and symphonies performances here over the last 8 years and would encourage anyone to give it a try.

We been going there for jazz concerts for the last three years. Great sound system, comfortable sittings, great location (downtown).

The sound system is good. The concert hall is very nice and chic. Seats are narrow and not much elbow room. Parking is great but have to pay.

This facility is primarily used for musical concerts, symphony, etc so there is a fee associated with each event. I recommend you go to their website if you'd like more information.
