“Beautiful place, lots of performances, some great”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

A lovely place to see and to listen to fine musical talent and see ballet and other dance performances. We don't always get the top of the bill actors, but sometimes we do, and our local talent is good also.

“Great acoustics and comflortable seats”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

This former movie palace has been renovated into an acoustical and visual beauty. Sight-lines are superb, parking plentiful, and the St. Louis Symphony is superb.

“Perfect venue for hearing in EVERY seat”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Powell Hall is a wonderful venue in St. Louis. Unlike other venues, the sound is perfect everywhere. If you don't mind a faraway view, you'll hear perfectly in the lower priced seats. One of St. Louis' treasures!

“concerts”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

great acoustics, no bad seats for listening. The symphony is great. The director does sometimes select "new" music and we have found it best to avoid these concerts (think atonal music). The New's Years Eve special concerts are a civilized way to spend new years. Lpts of restaurants nearby
