The Koger Center for the Arts books concerts and Broadway plays, among other events, and is a classy little place. It has around 2000 seats in its 3 levels and is small enough to hear and see everything easily. We sat in the 4 row balcony and were glad that we chose the comfortable cheap seats for our concert (Manheim... More

There is nothing more magical than watching the classically trained ballerinas perform The Nutcracker at Christmas time! You could feel the holiday spirit as the lit Christmas tree magically grew in front of you! The leaps and turns were incredible. The children dancers were all smiles and happiness, bringing joy to the audience! Hats off to artistic director Radenko Pavlovich... More

First time at the Koger Center and It was fantastic. I surprised my wife with tickets to the Alton Brown Show here a few weeks ago and she had a great time. Loved the performance and the theater. We were right down in the Orchestra seating and could see everything fine without any distractions. Seats were great and the location... More

Nice small theater with no bad seats. Worth checking out if there is a show in town that you want to see.

Have seen two Columbia City Ballet performances here and had a great time. The facilities are very good and decent priced snacks and drinks, a little high but expected for any venue like this. Close parking and plenty of it, some adjacent construction but that want last forever. Recommend catching a show.

We attended the Al Jarreau concert on Feb. 19th at the Koger Center. He is my all-time favorite, and did not disappoint. We attended the reception and silent auction before the concert and I was impressed with the comfort and navigability of the Koger Center. As other reviews stated, there is no center aisle, so we had gotten seats on... More

I have attended numerous performances over three separate visits to Columbia in as many years; the variety of performances available on the calendar from opera to ballet to symphony orchestra is simply wonderful and I have yet to leave disappointed. Student & military discounts are offered for almost all performances. Highly recommend--a must visit for any trip to Columbia!

I have come here for a variety of venues, plays (Such as West Side Story), music (philharmonics and Army Victory band) and I always have a pleasant experience. Overall the staff is always helpful and smiling. Most of them are young (local college students) but do well enough in their job functions. I recommend sitting towards the front of the... More
