“Beautiful venue.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Beautiful building, great acoustics, and plenty of parking - a major plus in this neighborhood. There is a good police presence during events although I wouldn't want to walk alone at night except before and after events. Very close to St. Louis University.

“RE: best acoustics; glorious beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

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 stars 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.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

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.
