I've enjoyed many music venues over time, indoor and out. Benaroya and the Seattle Symphony are super impressive. The music is a class above. The facilities are magnificent. If you enjoy classical arrangements, go.

I've seen all kinds of performances here from what you'd expect, great classical music, to things you might not, Ben Folds with the symphony, and National Geographic LIVE! presentations. The acoustics are incredible for classical music as they should be in a hall designed for that.

Great symphony hall. The symphony orchestra is a Grammy winning world class orchestra and the hall itself highlights all performances here. Have seen the orchestra as well as pop and other performances, all seats are good for sound.

This is a truly beautiful and functional hall. Sight lines are excellent and there are very few obstructed seats -- even the upper side boxes get a good view of 95% of the stage. The sound is superb. Having seen several orchestral and vocal performances here, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Always a pleasure to attend any performance here. Vocal or instrumental, Jazz or Classical - it matters not Great acoustics and view of stage from every sear. And speaking of seats, how refreshing to have seats where back support and space for knees was considered. Access via public transportation is outstanding. Go soon and see for yourself.

It was our first visit to the Benaroya, we got slightly lost and got there 15 min. late. But staff were really kind and curtious and let us in. We came to see the Seattle Symphony Orchestra which was fantastic. The hall was very spacious and the acoustics great, really enjoyed the music, will definitely be back.

Was taken here for a concert last night 4th February. The hall is very nice and good acoustic. Seatting was a bit to close. I am 5'6" and my knees touched the back of the seat.

I love going to Benaroya to hear the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and various touring musicians. The smaller concert hall usually features chamber music and it also has excellent acoustics.

We enjoyed the warm elegance of the building with the Chihuly chandeliers at either end of the entrance. The Seattle Symphony was conducted by the best conductor I have ever seen . The tickets went on sale for $30.00 each when we were ready to purchase them. Many patrons were having dinner at the venue on the night of the... More

We listened to the orchestra on a chilly Saturday night here and it was the most beautiful, moving experience. If you have the opportunity, go see a show.
