I very much enjoyed my night of Brahms at the Phoenix Symphony. Google maps delivered me to the front of the convention center which is the back of symphony hall. Look up the parking directions on the symphony website before you let Google deposit you on a dark corner in a strange town.

My husband and I have been attending shows by the symphony for years and every time we go it just gets better and better. The symphony has extremely talented musicians to begin with and then the conductors are always so entertaining. The last 2 shows we attended had singers and they have been amazing. We look forward to many more... More

Wow! We recently saw Bravo Broadway at the Phoenix Symphony and it blew our minds. We couldn't believe the high quality of the symphony and guest Broadway performers for the event. We have been to the symphony at least a dozen times in the past few years but this night was by far our favorite. The symphony always has fun... More

The Phoenix Symphony performed a rousing rendition of this very familiar symphony! A standing ovation at the end!

There may be some special concerts still but you need to order your season tickets now. Great year just concluded with interesting selections, new and old. Special program especially good for children. Good for mobility-challenged with ramps and elevators.

The lovely Phoenix Symphony Hall hosted the Sleeping Beauty presented by Ballet Arizona. It was my first time to see a ballet, and I found it breathtaking, and was impressed with the exquisite costumes, and settings. The beauty, and gracefulness of the ballet was beyond words. I certainly will not wait so long to see another ballet.

We attended one of their school symphony sessions with our homeschool group. it was only 45 minutes long but that was appropriate timing for my kids age level, 2nd and 6th grade. The composer was entertaining and the kids learned how some composers got their ideas for their music. The symphony hall is clean and the seats comfy. We walked... More

Jacomo Baires is amazing - a conductor with passion & charm. Vocalist Tony DeSare was a definite plus!!! Selections were great - my favorite was Silent Night - gorgeous rendition. Our first visit and we will definitely go back for more music. Entire event put a smile on my face and a song in my heart!

We just returned from the Phoenix Symphony and Chorus with Jacomo Barios, conducting, and Tony DeSare, a vocalist. It was truly great. My husband and I have never been to the symphony, but after this experience we will be back. Mr. Barios was fun to watch and very personable with the audience. The music was delightful and festive with songs... More

I have been a subscriber to the Arizona Opera for a couple of years now, and every season seems to get better. While some of the more traditional opera presentations can be drab and dull, the Arizona Opera company generally does a good job of keeping it lively and engaging. But even for people that are put off by the... More
