Love going to concerts here. The old marble staircases are so beautiful to see. I attend things here at least four times a year.

Classic and classy architecture, perfect acoustics even sitting near the back of the balcony, and good line of sight to the stage and the musicians. Public parking is available in city garages nearby for affordable parking (but beware if your... More

Heinz Hall does not have a bad seat in the house. It is especially lovely around the holidays! A must see

This is a beautiful hall, with friendly employees. But one warning: if you are taller than 5'10" do NOT buy a ticket in the upper balcony. They call it the "Family Circle" and the "Gallery."

When I saw Tony Bennet at Heinz Hall a few years ago, he mentioned how fortunate Pittsburgh is to have such wonderful concert hall. He then sang without any music to demonstrate.

Caught the PSO while I was in town. The performance was the music intermixed into Back to the Future, which was a great way to visit, given I had never been to a symphony before. The building and details are amazing. I recommend getting here early just to walk around and marvel at the building.

Always has excellent shows. It's always an evening to remember. We enjoy having dinner and drinks before the performance. Parking is handy.

Heinz Hall is a must see. The tapestry, marble, and chandeliers are truly remarkable. I have seen many venues in this place, and every single time I left mesmerized.

Back to Heinz Hall, lovely concert hall, good acoustics. We were able to buy tickets less than an hour before the show, it was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed both the concert hall and the show.
