The Kimmel Center is a wonderful place to spend an evening with friends, or even by yourself. The Phila. Orchestra is outstanding and Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin is a joy to watch. The selection of composers gives almost everyone the opportunity to find something to their taste. The only negative thing that I could say is that the pre-concert area... More

The Kimmel Center is a fantastic music venue with outstanding acoustics and an incredible range of musicians (from the guests to the Philly POPS to the Philadelphia Orchestra). Ticket prices can be extremely reasonable if you shop around for seats on the Kimmel Center site.

From about 1963 when I moved to Philadelphpia from France, to 1986 when I left to spend 7 years sailing my hot pink sailboat alone in the Pacific, I have been enjoying concerts and performances in this Grand Dame of culture.

The Kimmel Center is really top notch. Every seat is great. Set-up is a bit convoluted, but there are many employees to help you find your way. Acoustics are really great as well. Definitely recommend seeing a show here.
