“perfect sound”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

What a great symphony. Symphony Hall has great acoustics, musicians are excellent. Variey of music, from classical to pops. We all miss Marvin Hamlisch, but the symphony marches on. And the after-show disco is a blast!

“Holiday Pops was over-the-top fantastic. What a joy!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

I went with my sister on Sunday December 23, 2012. Matthew Garbutt conducted, with the San Diego Master Chorale and the
San Diego Children’s Choir. It was fun, beautiful, brilliant and sometimes funny. Eileen Ivers celtic band also played. So we had Christian, Jewish, and a bit of Irish joy all wrapped up into one evening. Lovely family fun. I hightly recommend it if you can catch it! Matthew Garbutt was great fun in his green and red plaid holiday pants with spats. Even the ringing of a cell phone from the crowd only products a funny comment from him as he continued conducting without missing a beat. Great fun! Not stuffy, nor cheesy.

Thanks to the Symphony for treating us to Llang Llang playing Beethoven's Emperor Concerto, we was over the top.

“Always good”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

And always great guest artists. I am surprised how parking is usually available somewhere within a couple of blocks but prices are usually reasonable since coupons are always around. They are as good as any major city.

“Vastly improved symphony orchestra”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

No matter what you've heard in the past, the San Diego Symphony is now an orchestra of excellence. There are many opportunities to buy discount tickets, sometimes for as little as $20, for interesting and diverse music. We live here and go often. Symphony Hall is beautiful too.
