Great venue

Comfortable seats and not so big that you feel lost in the crowd. Have watched many concerts there and it's always a great experience.

Recently stayed at the Kentucky Grand Hotel and by chance happened to be there when Melissa Manchester was performing at SKyPAC. Wonderful concert and very nice facility for it to be held.

I just attended the Sara Evans Christmas show with the Kentucky Orchestra and must say I was absolutely impressed. The size of the facility creates an intimate atmosphere where you can truly see the performance up close from any seat in the house.

We go often, whether it is to an Orchestra Kentucky show (SKyPAC is the Orchestra's home), or to a classic rock show like Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys.

They have artwork outside in the waiting area so you have something to do while waiting for the shows to start. I really enjoy seeing the orchestra play here.

Having moved here from Michigan, we were so fortunate to find this center. We were very active in attending performances in Michigan and were so delighted to realize we were in the same town as this great place.

SKyPAC is a fantastic facility. It has all the amenities of a performing arts center in a much larger city. I've yet to have a negative experience here.
