Wonderful acoustics

Saw the Seattle Symphony perform here. The acoustics are amazing and the building is gorgeous. There didn't seem to be a bad seat. I would recommend catching a performance here.

No matter where you sit, the experience and the sound is great. For the symphony I would suggest to sit on the balkony to see the full orchestra.

During a short vacation visit to Seattle, my wife and I attended an excellent concert at Benaroya Hall that was a part of the 2016 Summer Festival. We had excellent seats in the center close to the back of the smaller venue, the Recital Hall and being in the middle, we had to get past some of those already seated... More

Beneroya was one of those places Seattle built back in the Dot-Com bubble, when the town was investing heavily in itself. Same time frame when we got EMP and the new Central Library. Beneroya is a very fine concert hall, good acoustics, but ultimately what makes it good is who you go see there. Seattle doesn't quaite manage the shows... More

Incredible acoustics. I've seen Eddie Vedder play his ukele here as well as the Seattle Symphony seriously rock Beethoven. I highly recommend. Wild Ginger or The Capital Grille are nearby excellent restaurants.

We've been to Benaroya for concerts and lectures. The acoustics are great, the seating is very good, and the staff and volunteers are friendly and helpful. There is parking beneath the Hall, and elevators to bring you upstairs to the main floor. There are vendors for beverages and food - not a huge variety, but very very good. It is... More

I was fortunate to see David Sedaris read his new book here a while back - the entire crown had a wonderful time and everyone - regardless of where they were sitting - was able to immerse themselves in the experience. Unrelated highlight: the exquisite blown glass chandelier in the entry by none other than master artist Dale Chihuly

My first time to Benaroya Hall to hear the Seattle Symphony Orchestra play music from the movies. I throughly enjoyed it, the orchestra was amazing, the acoustics very good and it wass comfortable seating too. Definitely a moving experience that I will remember for a long time.

I have seen so many shows at Benaroya over the years and have loved everyone of them. I especially enjoyed the holiday pop's presentation. They mostly focus on Symphony works, but have a variety of other shows to pick from as well. Try to catch 10 Grands if you love the piano!
