“Transcendent Sibelius with Santtu-Matias Rouvali conducting”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Marvelous seats--twelfth row from the orchestra, center third. Appreciative crowd. Tremendous, original, emerging virtuosity exhibited by the young (26 year-old) Finnish conductor, who seemed rather to undulate, rather than conduct. Was admitted "back-stage" after the concert to personally congratulate Rouvali for his tremendously perceptive interpretation of Sibelius (stood, informally, with the rest of the orchestra awaiting the conductor, next to the featured Danish cello soloist, Andreas Brantelid, who would have gotten my undivided attention had it not been for the majestic performance of Mr. Rouvali!!

“First tier symphony i”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The orchestra is wolrd class and the Marcus Theater is a wonderful venue. My only criticism would be that they do not perfrom often enough and rarely outside the Maruc Theater. Wish there were more performances, but truly magnificnet.

“Wonderful evening at the Symphony”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We attended the "Music of Mad Men" Pops concert in June and certainly enjoyed the show. The conductor was Steven Reineke (from Carnegie Hall). He was very personable and the songs he chose were very entertaining.

The best part of the show was hearing the singing of the Guest Artist of the evening...Hugh Panaro !
He is the current Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Phantom of the Opera" on Broadway. He has a magnificent voice and sang a variety of songs. He was truly impressive and we hope the MSO will be able to bring him back soon.

The Marcus Center is a comfortable theater, very clean with courteous ushers.
