Excellent venue

I've heard the symphony, musicals, speeches, and seen films here. It is the best acoustical venue in town. It is also very beautiful.

We've see n two amazing shows here. Fiona Apple and Trey Anastasio (from Phish) with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. Both shows were amazing.

This is one of the best places in town to see a medium(ish) sized show. The sound is really good, the venue is nice, and comfortable, its in a decent part of town. If you live here you have been here. If your visiting and catch a show there, well its worth the time and effort.

It is worth planning a trip to hear prominent guest musicians like Joshua Bell, Itzhak Perlman, and Yo Yo Ma.

Beautiful Seattle Symphony in a splendid hall with stellar acoustics. Easy to reach on the bus, or by car. Very near Pike Place Market and Seattle Art Museum.

This impressive Hall is the home of the Seattle Symphony as well as a venue for many other musicial events. It has an excellent acoustics, good views from all seats, and convenient location in the heart of downtown. They do have inexpensive tickets for students, although parking fee is not cheap. Chihuly's glass art pieces graced the lobby welcoming everyone.... More

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.
