Went to see a showing of North by Northwest with music provided by STL symphony. The show was great, the music beautifully done, but the show stopper was the building itself. Whatever you might see there, take time to appreciate the building and its opulence.

Saint Louis is truly blessed to have such a rich, accessible symphony right downtown. Beautiful hall, great selection of shows. I have yet to have a bad experience.

We thought that the hall was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. We arrived about a half hour prior to the performance, parked on the street about two blocks away, and people-watched in the lobby. Our seats, which were on the orchestra level, were a...More

This was our first visit ever to the St Louis Symphony and it was well worth it. We went on a Sunday so parking for the most part was free on the city streets. The police and the ushers were very friendly. The men's restroom...More

Saw the Jurassic Park in Concert show last night, and, aside from loving the show, was very pleased with the venue. Not too big, so our less expensive seats we're still nice. Very roomy seats - didn't have to share an armrest with your neighbor...More
