We arrived at the facility to have our music students in our band perform for a competition. I was expecting an old symphony hall with grand sounds, but was pleasantly surprised by the acoustics of this newer hall. The staff was very helpful during our performance and accommodated our large group to be able to rehearse and even eat lunch... More

I am sure the reviews differ based on what was playing. We went for Mahler's 9th Symphony, and the music was absolutely amazing. The concession prices were not bad, and the staff was friendly. I can't wait to go back.

Attended ASO for the world premier of "Kohar" which was incredible. Wonderful acoustics and both the symphony and chorus were fantastic. A word of caution about returning via MARTA - the Peachtree Center is closed after the evening symphony and riding MARTA late then getting off in downtown involves some walking on the streets with some rather unsavoury characters to...

The music and voices were wonderful. Had me looking up pieces on YouTube and listening to the classics for hours. Seating was great. Theatre sound was awesome. You will not be sorry to attend any offering!

Had opportunity to see ASO on a last minute idea. Playing Petrouchka by Igor Stravinsky was not to be missed. Tonight the ASO really clicked from the first note to last. However, audience did not seem to figure it out and polite applause was all they could muster. Should have been standing o. Even after concert I chatted with one... More

We attended the Romance concert offered by the symphony and actually left at intermission. The seats were decent but the performance was very subpar. The venue appears to need to be upgraded and the performers for such a holiday event was more like a karoke night. The symphony itself was quite good and to be honest would have been a... More

We go to the ASO regularly, and it is our happy place. Last year's Valentine show was a 10. This years was a 4. I did not go to hear some guy play jazz guitar, and 'scat' with lyrics we could not understand, for 90% of the show. The applause was only 'polite', and a lot of people walked out... More

This venue had wonderful acoustics. I sat in the balcony for total enjoyment, eyes and ears. There is parking underground and nearby.

Saw Seth MacFarlane with the Symphony.Seemed like a good idea.He really seems to enjoy the Great Ameican Songbook.He really seems to like the gloomier songs from said book.We sat in the cheap seats.Very good view and sound from up there.
