We are members of MCCA and have been since it was the first resident company at Gallo. We have told friends and family of the sophiscated sound at GCA. No need to turn up the volumne to... More

Came to Modesto to catch a show at the Gallo Center. We walked there from our hotel, it was that close! The downtown area is hopping with activity, and people dining or going to the movie theatre. We had a blast.

This is a beautiful theatre! No seat is a bad seat, it's just the right size with a great view from all directions! The parking was convient and plentiful! The staff were nice and helpful from the ladies at the ticket counter, to the ushers, and even the security guard when I entered! Amazing experience!

My husband and I love Russian composers! The musical selections were great. The Symphony musicians were quite good. They were extremely professional and incredibly talented. This is the second performance we have attended and I have been greatly pleased with the Center. The attendant volunteers are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The staff are approachable and seem to be very interested... More
