The composer was entertaining and the kids learned how some composers got their ideas for their music. The symphony hall is clean and the seats comfy. We walked... More

Jacomo Baires is amazing - a conductor with passion & charm. Vocalist Tony DeSare was a definite plus!!! Selections were great - my favorite was Silent Night - gorgeous rendition. Our first visit and we will definitely go back for more music. Entire event put a smile on my face and a song in my heart!

We just returned from the Phoenix Symphony and Chorus with Jacomo Barios, conducting, and Tony DeSare, a vocalist. It was truly great. My husband and I have never been to the symphony, but after this experience we will be back. Mr. Barios was fun to watch and very personable with the audience. The music was delightful and festive with songs... More

I have been a subscriber to the Arizona Opera for a couple of years now, and every season seems to get better. While some of the more traditional opera presentations can be drab and dull, the Arizona Opera company generally does a good job of keeping it lively and engaging. But even for people that are put off by the... More

We love this wonderful ballet, and were not disappointed by the performance in the Symphony Hall (our first time here). It is a VERY nice theater, the seats are very comfortable, with plenty of room. How we loved to see so many young daughters and granddaughters all dressed up in pink or white ballet costumes for the evening (with their... More

Every time we have been to the symphony, we have enjoyed it tremendously. beautiful music, great acoustics, friendly staff and reasonable prices during intermission. Comparable to the Chicago Symphony but less expensive.

There really are no bad seats, the acoustics are excellent, and the layout is good. Bathrooms are clean and large enough for minimal wait times. Top notch performances. Excellent venue for an elegant evening.

My mom and I are regular symphony goers. I don't think that you can beat the deal of going to the symphony on Sunday afternoon where any seat in the house is great including those that cost only $18. We have gone for two seasons now and it is often the highlight of our month. The variety of conductors are... More

We, along with about six other couples have season tickets to the symphony. We are never disappointed with the excellence we are able to enjoy. We look forward to each new season!
