Amazing experience here, the musicians are extremely skilled at what they do and have a modest attitude about them, an evening well spent

Took part in an event at the Symphony Hall for the first time and it is an outstanding venue. The back stages facilities are good and the arena itself is great. The area around has restaurants and coffee shops.

Is row AA in the stalls too close to the stage. The only seats left are VIP in this row but I want to be able to see the show. (It is a dance show) Thanks

Normally around ten but I'd check with the venue. We took the train and got the 10.30 no problem
