We went to the Merrium Theater part of the Kimmel Center. We saw the Alvin Ailey dancers. The theater was within walking distance of our bed and breakfast. We bought our tickets online. The whole experience was very easy from booking the tickets, locating and walking to the Center and entering the theater. The ushers were very friendly and helpful.... More

Well, this was my first concert at the Kimmel center and we had an awesome time. What a great venue, the sound was wonderful and the seating.....you could be in the last row and still have a great experience. Can't wait to go again.

We watched a show at the Perelman Theater, inside the Kimmel Center. This is a really cool venues, small, all wood, great for interactive shows which the one we saw was. Visiting the Kimmel is always a treat, and this was no exception.

We love to see live music, and this is a beautiful modern venue. The sound quality is fantastic and the stage can be seen from any seat. However, this is the second time in as many months that we have been unable to buy bottled water from the vendors. We were seated on the highest level, and the staff sent... More

Spent Friday afternoon, Jan 27, with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Y N-S at " The Paris Festival : Week 3". A fantastic selection of music and a spectacular performance. The Orchestra sounds better every time we go. Thanks for a program to remember

The performance center is modern, clean and comfortable. A big step up from the old Academy of Music. Orchestra concerts are very enjoyable. You can even have a 5 star pre concert dinner upstairs. My only regret is that I don't have time to get here more often.

Love the artwork inside the Kimmel Center! Buidling is beautiful and the seats inside each of the stages are comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the coffee and somewhat healthy desert and snack offerings at the snack bar. When we were there they ran out of lids and heat protectors for the coffee cups, however. And, it was hard to get... More

Home of the Philadelphia Orchestra in its magnificent hall. Also involved the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia in a smaller hall and lots of other open space for snacking, popup art and resting plus a three star restaurant that's a little pricey for Philly. Right in the center of the city on Broad St.

This is a great place to see a concert. I've only been there once, but would go back in a heartbeat. It's very well designed.
