My husband and I love the STL Symphony, and we go every chance we get. To end our dates at Powell Hall, we decided to go the the Jim Brickman concert. Jim Brickman is a talented pianist and funny. He played well with the orchestra, and the music was just what we were looking for - calm and soothing -... More

SLSO is always a joy to hear. I've heard them perform probably 5-6 times so far. Although I cant afford to go to as many shows as I'd like (pricey tickets), I pay attention to their special offerings, looking for an excuse to go back.

The quality of the music by the St. Louis Symphony is first-rate. However, as is all too typical in my experience, their technical excellence is frequently marred by choosing off putting music, music that either no one has heard of or that is simply not very harmonic or pleasing to listen, such as, for example, ones with dissonant notes and...

Whenever I get a chance, I recommend that people come see a symphony at Powell Hall. The building itself is a beautifully renovated space with a soaring lobby that I think is fun to visit in itself and, while I am admittedly not an experienced connoisseur of classical music, I always think the orchestra sounds amazing. In the past, I... More

We have season tickets and sometimes I feel tired and consider not going to the symphony. But we almost always do go, and I always am happy that we did. The Saint Louis Symphony never fails to reward its audience with top-quality, stirring performances. It truly is an uplifting experience.

The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra is one of St. Louis' best attractions. The musicians are very passionate about the music, and it shows in their performance. The orchestra plays a verity of symphonic music, that there is truly something for everyone. You can hear them perform music from classical composers, such as Bach and Beethoven, to modern composers, such as... More

In fact, the St Louis Symphony has more Grammys than any other musical organization, and every one of them MORE than well earned! Technical perfection combined with heartfelt virtuosity makes for an unbeatable combination for decades! If you miss this one, it's definitely YOUR LOSS!
