If you like classical music and you have not seen Patricia Kopatchinskaja perform live, you should make very effort to do so, Just to listen and observe this truly world class musician is a memory that will remain with you, perhaps forever. Cheers.

We went to see The Okee Dokee Brothers with our five-year-old and one-year-old. The venue was very nice, and the acoustics and performances were top notch. The kids had a great time, and I would definitely recommend this place in the future.

My husband and I enjoy Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra concerts a few times a year. We love the new Ted Mann Concert Hall. The Scandanavian minimalist design, reminiscent of a Lutheran church, with beautiful wood tones and a "choir" seating section elevated behind the stage...More

I would love to rate this excellent, but cannot. The performance was excellent and the theatre was elegant. I was however very disappointed to learn from the ushers that the only handicapped bathroom was ONE "family unit" located near the entrance. One of us was...More
