You may consider Birmingham and then try to project that image on the ASO. You would make a sad mistake. For all the difficulities Birmingham has, the ASO not only overcomes it - it is a beacon (along with the Civil Rights Museum and the...More

The Alabama Symphony is offering a new series of music on some Thursday nights at the Alys Stephenson Center that are very good. They start at 6 and only last an hour. A good way to relax and unwind. This is an excellent venue to...More

We've been to ASO several times both with and without our children. It is always a wonderful experience whether it's in the Alys Stephen's center or at Samford's Wright Center.

Ive been buying season tix to the Pops series for years. The shows are always better than they sound in the advertising. Good to support our local arts- these are more "fun". Last night for Halloween, they were at the Alabama Theater in Downtown Birmingham....More

This is our own Alabama Symphony Orchestra! They are first rate musicians, have played at Carnegie Hall, and now we have a wonderful new conductor. We have season tickets for the Masterworks series.

As I've never been to the symphony before, this was a real treat. The venue is great, and I imagine that all the seats would be good.

I would highly recommend the Alabama Symphony for New Year's Eve. Every year they choose a composer and they do a wonderful job. The symphony with friends and a midnight toast is just the way to start the New Year!

Saw the orchestra play at the November coffee concert. Was a great experience that performed songs surrounding the theme of love. Very much enjoyed myself.

One of the finest, smaller symphony ensembles anywhere. Our band was invited to Carnegie Hall to perform in May, 2102. And a memorable performance it was. 700 symphony enthusiasts from Birmingham attended the concert (including my wife and I). One cannot do better when in...More
