We were very disappointed with the July 4 concert. No patriotic songs, other than the national anthem. It was an opportunity for the people to sing along, & Richard Kaufman chose music that had nothing to do with July 4th. Then, the Chicago tribute band...More

We got tickets the day of the performance in the concert hall. Excellent performance and music. Entertained the entire time. Easy to park and find many dining options and the concert hall is perfect.

Attended the season opening performance of the Pacific Symphony in Segerstrom Hall, with Olga Kern as guest piano soloist. First time in the hall and first time hearing the orchestra--having heard orchestras around the country, I would give this group a solid "A" for performance....More

Our seats were front and center and we couldn't see the other half of the orchestra seated behind the violins. A terrible waste of money.
