“Beethoven 7th Symphony ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

Charles Dutoit with CSO performing Beethoven 7th Symphony, a very moving performance, in a beautiful historic venue. I couldn't find any fault. The Center itself is a historic architecture.

“World Class!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The CSO is one of the world's best symphony orchestras and the hall (Symphony Center) has excellent acoustics. One needn't say more!

“Ask for a discount for cleaning the ceiling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

A beautiful orchestra hall. But if you get a seat on the top level, be sure to ask for a discount on your ticket because you can touch the actual ceiling...and help clean it for them, too.

“Superb Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had the pleasure of seeing a performance of Mahler's third symphony this past weekend. The orchestra is truly amazing every time I see them. Tickets aren't cheap, but they are completely worth every penny you spend. Top balcony seats, truthfully, are cheaper, but I still think the sound's better in the balconies. Must see!

“Historical and exquisite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

And the acoustics are wonderful. No matter the instrument...no matter how softly it is played...and most particularly, no matter where you sit you can hear every note. You can also see well throughout the theater.
