It is so lovely to watch the sun set...do bring your sunglasses as you'll be facing the sunset, and it's bright! Usually there is a gentle breeze. It often gets cold after the sun goes down, especially if you are sitting in the grandstands or laying on a blanket. No matter how hot the day, I bring a jacket with... More

We saw the 4th oh July Summer Pops Show. It was the perfect location, had a great screen to see better, and the acoustics were fabulous. We sat in the bleacher seats, which were fine. Take a blanket and a sweater for the show. It gets chilly.

Conveniently located downtown on 7th and B. Its actually a symphony hall but also used as a regular concert venue. Good seating through out so the view is pretty good everywhere. They also have a balcony level. All in all good concert venue!

We may live 200 miles away, but still joined the symphony just to support great music & great presentation. We especially like the summer pops on the embarcadero, but every performance we have attended has been 1st rate!

Attended 'Salute to Vienna' as a family of 5 on New Years Day. Really enjoyed the interior architecture, will call was relatively fast and the ushers were helpful. Acoustics were great and we were able to hear everything from the balcony. They also allow you to bring snacks and drinks to your seat which is great with children in tow.... More

All the seats are good. The sound is great. There is paid parking nearby. Go with the $5 dollar garage it is not far and the best deal. Several good places to eat nearby. Great date night. Not just for old people. Good mixed crowd.

San Diego's Fox Theater, a grand 1929 movie palace that opened a month before the onset of the Great Depression, had become a pit stop for touring musicals by the 1970s. In 1986, the San Diego Symphony purchased the building, carefully restored it to its Spanish rococo glory, and turned into into a concert hall. More recently, a handsome wooden... More

We subscribed to the 7 concert mini-package, and have been enjoying them each month. This symphony has world class guest performers and a world class conductor. Our seats are mid orchestra and the sound is very good. For those of you who have never been to the symphony, I encourage you to stretch your musical experience and add it to... More

Came here on a Saturday evening and had great seats (Row Q) at very reasonable prices ($34). Programme included the West coast premiere of a composition by Judd Greenstein and it was an additional bonus to be able to chat with Mr Greenstein during the interval. Usually not a fan of "modern" music, but his "Change" composition was highly unusual... More
