“Two terrific concert halls!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Kimmel Center has two terrific concert halls -- one large, the other more intimate. THe main hall -- Verizon Hall -- where the Philadelphia Orchestra performs is simply gorgeous and not to be missed by any music lover.

“Yannick does the Kimmel justice.”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you are planning to visit phila and have ever enjoyed classical music, coming to hear a Yannick/Phila Orchestra performance should be atop your list. he has brought the Orchestra back to its historic pinnacle. the venue is world class. it really feels like you are seated within a stringed instrument. very cool. just sit back and enjoy a marvelous treat.

“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.
