“Sweet Jazzfest”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

On the weekend we were in town, Chandler was hosting their jazzfest which is completely free to the citizens. We went for a bit each day and despite the fact that there were no major big name headliners, all the musicians were professionals and played their hearts out. It was absolutely delightful to go to the park across from the center for the arts and sit back and enjoy the music. They also had a correlating crafts fair going on simultaneously, so you could walk around the area, listen to great music, shop, browse, eat. What a wonderful event the City of Chandler puts on for its citizens. We were so happy to attend and would definitely attend again in future years if in town and definitely recommend to others.

“Good sound system”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We heard Pat Metheny perform at Chandler Center for the arts in February 2014. The sound system was surprisingly good. Our last visit to the Chandler Center was 15 years ago, when we experienced a horrible sound system. Obviously they have made improvements. The Center was nicely furnished and not in any way shabby, although I am not sure I agree with their sale of popcorn in the lobby. We also enjoyed the adjoining free art gallery, where we saw a great photography exhibit.

“Bella Gaia was not bella.”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

What a huge disappointment. The ticket was hefty for an 80 minute show, promised to be magnificent, that I left with a friend after enduring a half hour. The "music" was monotonous and terribly loud. It was more a mixture of moans from the two ladies on keyboard. The one dancer that I saw seemed to be making it up as she went along. Possibly the show improved as the evening progressed, but we literally couldn't stand anymore.
I have been to this wonderful center many times for ballets and concerts and have loved all of them.
Bella Gaia is not worth the ticket.
If you don't believe me, that is of course your decision.......but please bring some earplugs or you will be blasted out of your seat by electronic ca ca.

“Good place for a concert in Chandler”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We went to this center to hear Los Lonely Boys in concert. It was easy to get to with plenty of parking. Sound quality is good and there is lots of seating with a good view of the stage. I would not hesitate to book another show at the Chandler Center for the Arts.
