The Utah Symphony provided an incredible performance for the musical score while showing the "Disney in Concert: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" movie. This was indeed an amazing experience. Abravanel Hall is less than ideal, however, for a 2-hour plus...More

This is a wonderful venue for any type of concert. We were invited to a private dinner with a private concert by a Salt Lake City chamber music orchestra that was absolutely unbelievable. The sculpture made by Dale Chihuly at the entrance is magnificent. The...More

I graduated from high school in this building and have only been back for symphonies, but have attended many of these over the years. The acoustics are very good. The foyer (lobby) is comfortable. I suggest not sitting in the first five or so rows,...More

We have attended several events here from concerts to seminars. The building is beautiful and clean. It seems there is not a bad seat in the house! The staff are friendly and helpful.

We saw Mannheim Steamroller here 12/26. Second time we have seen them, and while I won't comment on the actual concert here (not that it wasn't great, just not relevant to the review) I think Abravanel Hall was wonderful. For past concerts & musicals in...More
