This is a very nice facility with a comfortable pleasent atmosphere. All seat are good only differentiated by distance. One senses a strong community atmosphere at this venu. The show was very good.

The sound for any event has always been very good. Probably improved by not having multiple aisles. I have grown to like the arrangement of the seating: only side aisles, but plenty of leg room.

Wonderful venue. Not sure that there is a "bad seat" anywhere. Restrooms are HUGE and can easily accommodate large crowds. Staff very friendly

If you haven't scheduled the Nutcracker ballet as part of your holiday event, you're definitely missing out. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoy seeing the ballet every year.

I attended the virtuoso violin solo of Sayaka Shoji with the orchestra under the batan of Morihiko Nakahara at the Koger Center. The acoustics were fabulous but nothing matched the two solos by violinist Shoji. She made the violin do things that no violin should...More

Beautiful building, free parking, every seat a good one. Varied venues, but for a city like Columbia, a sure bet if the venue interests you.

Near the Koger center is a parking "barn." I think the cost was $10.00. There is on the street parking as well but it is limited.
