Parking is always an issue downtown, but as rates go their parking was reasonably priced. The ushers made seat finding a breeze

Went to listen to the Houston Symphony for the first time. They are phenomenal! Performing both the Fountains of Rome and the Pines of Rome has been one of my greatest dreams come true. Only missing Roman Festivals to complete the trio, but that is not an issue. Very moving violin concerto as well. Under the baton of maestro Vasily... More

We've been to two concert of the Houston Symphony at Jones Hall. Fidelio opera was amazing and the symphony sounded fantastics. Saw Falla and Espana last week with an amazing cello soloist. We have a world class symphony in Houston and everyone needs to pick a few concerts and go enjoy

Visiting Jones Hall on Sunday 02/12 to see Stomp. Not only was the show amazing but the venue is absolutely incredible. I don't believe there is a bad seat in the house. The cast was incredibly energetic and interacted well with the crowd. The show was timely and the acts held the audience captive.

Beautiful Inside and out, Jones Hall is home of the Houston Symphony and the Society for the Performing Arts. So, it has the best of classical music along with performance by top level traveling companies from the US and the World. The hall is lovely to look at and it is decorated with beautiful art and sculptures. Make time to... More

We paid over $300 for front row center seats (A6/A7) to the Dec 28 performance of Shen Yun. Directly in front of us was a four foot wall separating the orchestra pit. This wall not only limited our leg room, but completely blocked our view of anything below the waist of the performers. Looking around, we noticed other visitors had... More

Jones Hall for the Performing Arts is a wonderful venue offering great sound and good viewing from almost any seat in the house. We have watched Raiders of the Lost Ark, with the Houston Symphony providing the musical score. Wonderful performance! Most recently, we attended a concert by Smokey Robinson. Although in his 70's now, Smokey's voice is as solid... More

My wife and I went to Jones Hall to hear the Houston Symphony and a cover band perform the music of Queen. Picking up our tickets at the "will call" desk was easy and fast, cocktails were available before the concert and during intermission and the sound was outrageously good! My only complaint with Jones Hall is access to restrooms.... More

Great hall in the heart of theater District. Seats 1 and 101 are center seats. If the show has something you want to see, choose seats on the lower level. If it just something to hear, all seats are good. Underground tunnel and parking connections and close to downtown dining options. We saw Garrison Keillor One Man Show.

We went to see Raiders of the Lost Ark while the Houston Symphony played. It was fantastic!! Very well done and fascinating to watch. Intermission was nice as they do not want you to leave while symphony was playing. Snacks over priced and not worth it. Go out for dessert after! We had seen The Matrix years ago played here...
