The City Hall was the place to ear during one hour excellents and young musicians. Do not matter set down at stairs, because the program was rich and plenty of harmony.

We love attending the symphony in Seattle. If you are visiting please don't pack the sequins and tie to attend, just come and enjoy the music. There is a new conductor and he is reaching out to young people with shorter programs. There are no bad seats in the hall because the acoustics are amazing. There are lots of places... More

Every performance I have attended here has been delightful. The box seats are outstanding if you can get one.

Seattle Symphony is moving up the ratings worldwide, and with good reason. And Benaroya Hall is a feast for the eyes as well as the ears. Just one thing: Remember, everyone can hear you scratching, the place if very acoustically "live".

I'm not a Symphony lover, but the music was very good, and the facility beautiful. I don't know why it had to start so late - 8pm.

Art in its purest form performed with an attitude of collaberation instead of mainstaging. The forum is unserpassable.

Don't miss the symphony on your visit to Seattle. The performances are very good, there is good food for the breaks and excellent cookies which are a very good value.

Beautiful concert hall. Went at the last minute to a Chris Botti concert along with the symphony. Seats were very high up but the song was great. Very enjoyable

I recently attended the second night of the symphony's 2 night 4 Rachmaninov piano concerti. The #4 was played first featuring a young Russian pianist, Denis Kozukhin followed by the #3 after the intermission. Nothing can follow the #3 so that's why they were done out of order. The Chinese pianist, Di Wu was all arms and contortions wringing as... More
