“Very enjoyable Mozart concert.”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

This was my first concert with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and I was not disappointed. The orchestra approached Mozart's work with a lot of energy and gusto. This was reflected with the energetic conducting style of Gerard Schwarz. Very enjoyable and would go again.

“Very affordable venue to hear first class music”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Ever since Ludovic Morlot became the Music Director of the Seattle Symphony it appears to have broadened its listener base considerably. In part it is due to a smart pricing policy. I often times get very generous offers to buy tickets to single performances that are hard to refuse. As a result I've been frequenting Seattle Symphony concerts and have listened to some amazing performers play with the Seattle Symphony. I particularly enjoy young talent that Ludovic Morlot brings to Seattle. Also worth mentioning is an amazing diversity of musical genres and styles offered as part of the Seattle Symphony program.

“Great experience of the arts”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

We went to Tchaikfest on the second night and Benaroya Hall was packed! The concert was at 8:00 and we went to purchase tickets at around 6 and there were only 3rd tier tickets left available for purchase. I presented my student ID and my ticket was only 15 dollars! It was the best 15 dollars I've ever spent! The hall was beautiful and the guest musicians were world renowned and outstanding. If you are in town visiting and a lover of classical music this is definitely an experience you don't want to miss!

Reviewed 18 January 2014

Just attended the 2 night Tchaikovsky Festival featuring 3 young artists who absolutely mesmerized the audience. They were absolutely brilliant, technically in the stratosphere. Then, add the 'normal' outstanding support of the orchestra and it was truly two nights to be remembered. We have attended MANY performances and have yet to hear one that we regret going to. We think this is an outstanding orchestra and attracts outstanding performers, young as well as established.
