“World Class Venue”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

I now live on the West Coast but I'm a native Philadelphian and was a subscriber to the Philadelphia Orchestra for many years. The Kimmel Center is a great venue to listen to music. There are no bad seats in this house. I highly recommend any visitor or native of the Philadelphia region make it a point to visit this facility and enjoy a concert. Your ears will thank you.

Reviewed February 10, 2013

Doesn't matter what is showing here, the acoustics are fanominal
and the set designs outragious.I have seen numerous shows at the Kimmel and have never been disappointed .

“Don't think I would see Beyond Beethoven Again”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

So we got tickets to see Beyond Beethoven. The first act was rough (pretty boring), but the second was excellent. No matter what you see the venue was amazing. The acoustics bring out nuances of the performance and you can hear clearly throughout the theater. It is very beautiful too.
