We were lucky enough to listen to the Philly Pops in this beautiful setting. The symphony hall, shaped somewhat like the curved part of a violin, with endlessly high ceilings and fabulous acoustics. Well worth a visit.

1st time at this hall. Allow extra time for possible slow traffic on the Schuylkill or downtown. Easy to find, within walking distance of City Hall in Philly. Parking garage right across the street and up the block. Website worked fine for ticket purchase. Beautiful acoustics, we sat in 3rd level front row, for best sound get seats that are... More

recently purchased tickets to a show on-line. Tickets were $99 / each but there was a $17.50 fee and then another $4.00 fee per ticket. The fees went up per ticket if I purchased more expensive tickets. WOW - that's crazy!!

We were walking by this beautiful venue and saw that a tour was available so we went in and we're very impressed with the 2 theaters we were able to visit. We learned about the Avenue of the Arts and enjoyed our tour guides information. Someday hope to attend a performance but also learned it's a public place, everyone welcome... More

Attending the Philadelphia Orchestra ( one of the best orchestras worldwide) in this architectural jewel was one of the highlights of our visit in Philadelphia. Surprisingly, last minute tickets were available at remarkably low prices,if someone had the patience to wait in a line.

If you are staying downtown, where you can walk or take an inexpensive cab, you will likely enjoy the sound and the interiors in the Kimmel Center. However, after enjoying different types of events there over the years since it was first built, we will no longer be attending either matinee or evening performances, as the parking has become too...

We have visited here regularly in the last year. It is a world class venue for symphonies and every one we have seen have been sensational. All seats are wonderful and give excellent views of the conductor and orchestra. It is easy to get in and out of and we have become very big fans to the point we have... More

We really enjoyed this venue to watch the Philadelphia Orchestra! The venue was very clean and a beautiful place to experience one of the best orchestras in the country. All of the staff were knowledgable and friendly and the seats were very comfortable. I would highly recommend the Kimmel Center, and specifically the Philadelphia Orchestra if you are looking for...
