The ASO is one of the most exciting places to visit in Anchorage. We started out going as part of a Humanities course, and have been regulars ever since. For such a small city, the symphony is out of this world!

I think the quality of the orchestra is very good, especially for the size of the city & area they have to draw upon. They do their own performances but also play for many visiting productions. It is a nice amenity to have.

Excellent variety of programming for the novice or trained ear. Introducing generations of Alaskans to the arts. Bravo!

When we moved to Anchorage from Seattle, we thought we would not be able to enjoy the type of Symphony experience we were used to. Boy were we wrong! This orchestra is conducted by Randall Craig Fleischer and it is apparent that he imposes strict discipline on the musicians. Some small community orchestras can be described as playing good music badly. That is most assuredly NOT the case with the ASO. We are happy subscribers to this orchestra and are truly transported every time we go. Randy also has impeccable taste in music selection, so even his exploratory works turn out very well.

As a lifelong lover of classical music, I was curious to see if the Anchorage Symphony could deliver memorable performances. I was not disappointed. All of the orchestral musicians were very talented, as is the conductor. Their renditions of Gershwin and Copland were fantastic- so much so that I'm going to buy season tickets! Alaskans owe it to themselves to experience this cultural event at least once.

The acoustics of the Performing Arts Center are worth mentioning, as well: I've sat in virtually every area of the auditorium for many shows, and have never once been let down by the audio quality.
