“The Great Philadelphia Orchestra”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Although I am not a classical music buff, I find it pure pleasure to listen to the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Kimmel Center. The audience is always so "well-behaved" and respectful as opposed to audiences at other musical venues.

“Great Home for the Philadelphia Orchestra”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We have attended concerts at the Kimmel for four years. It is not steeped in history like the Grand Old Lady of Broad Street, but is is a fine way to hear the orchestra. I would suggest that those who have problems with heights do not take seats higher than Tier One. I once tried Tier Three and had to immediately exit!!! I do appreciate that the staff found very acceptable tickets for us to enjoy the performance at a lower level. Thanks again, guys.
