An old movie house, Powell is home to the world-renowned St. Louis Symphony. Fresh off a European tour, the orchestra sounds fantastic in their home, Powell Hall. Great romantic date, great family choice, great for college-aged.

“Powell”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

It's been a while since I was there, as symphonies aren't my thing. I was there for a Christmas program a couple of years ago, and it was decorated for the holidays. Very classy/tastefully done. The accoustics were perfect and the seats were very comfortable.

Excellent performances and sound system. Prices are acceptable without breaking the bank. Parking is changing around the Hall, I would arrive early to get the best parking.
