Really well thought out and nicely appointed. Our seats were comfy, lines were short and the concert superb.

We are long-term Reno Phil season tickets holders and this year included our teen son. This is a nice venue. The recent upgrades are nice. They need either another elevator or a bigger one though.

We’ve been to a few shows here. Parking is easy and free! The theater itself is comfortable and small so most seats are good, others excellent. Happy to have the Pioneer shows!

Great little gem. Looks 'different' from the outside and when you arrive you really wonder what to expect. Once you are in and attend a concert, you fall completely in love. Great acoustics, great orchestra (superb conductor). Overall a remarkable experience, will come again soon.

The Pioneer Center is celebrating its 50th year. We saw the show STOMP--great show. Visibility and acoustics were good even though we were in the very back row of the balcony.
