“The Top Shelf Venue in SLO County”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

The Performing Arts Center is a facility any town, even a large city would be proud to have as a venue for events of any kind. I was lust at a New Years Eve Concert to a sold out house at the Performing Arts Center, It is a toast to the excellence of the San Luis Symphony and the Performing Arts Center Staff that a full house concert came off perfectly. I mean Perfectly. This place is worth every penny of the ticket prices. Check the website for specific about events as things are scheduled way in advance and I would recommend buying tickets early to get good seats! (don't all show goers know that?) The symphony had incredible, performances by the entire orchestra and solos that really knocked it out of the park, this is a must see group wherever they play. Fabulous, simply Fabulous!

“New Year's Eve with the Symphony at PAC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Small venue in a beautifully maintained facility staffed by SLO students and with really no bad seats. We were four rows behind the symphony for this magnificent show which included aerial acrobatics, a very talented soprano and an outstanding piano player. Snacks and drinks were very reasonably priced. We live in LA but would love to attend another show at this facility. Bravo!

“Good place to see a variety of entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The PAC has a wide variety of artists and events throughout the year. Parking is plentiful and it is easy to get in and out of. The seating is good and since it is smaller a good place to see an artist. The acoustics are also very good.
