This is a world class concert facility. Any show you see here will be enhanced because of the quality of the venue and the artist's appreciation of performing here. I have seen Jazz, Symphony, Rock, Country, Holiday, Chorus, and more. Every artist raves about the quality of the venue. Don't miss it if you have the chance.

It's such a pleasure to have a place on the North side that you can go to to hear the music and special events. Parking is easy and they have wonderful handicapped accessibility.

So many times you go to a live performance with high expectations only to experience something less than you had hoped for. We are pleased that this was not our experience at the Palladium. The lines of sight are clean and the acoustics are clear. The Palladium enhances the performance. It allows the best of performers to elevate the audience... More

The Palladium is a beautiful venue for many types of entertainment. We attend various concerts throughout the year - from opera, to country, to pop. Every seat is a good seat. The interior is beautiful and comfortable. The staff is helpful and generous. I would recommend attending an event sometime this year!

I have had the pleasure of hearing world class orchestras, Wynton Marsalis, Tony Bennett and several other nationally known performers in this hall. The acoustics are superb and it is a beautiful facility.

As out-of-towners, we were excited to have the opportunity to visit for a Carmel Symphony Orchestra performance, especially so with the added draw of seeing our (Jordan College of the Arts) Butler University musician son, who had been hired for this one performance. What a great 1,500-seat venue! It's obviously a fairly new building, but you get the idea they... More

My wife and I saw The Five Irish Tenors last weekend. This was my first visit to Palladium. Very impressive venue. Adult beverage service was sub-par. Limited selection of 'well quality' bottles, no Jack, no ginger ale, etc. Would suggest elevating quality of beverage selections for the money they're charging.

We went to hear the Prague Philharmonia and truly enjoyed the experience. The concert itself was wonderful, and was certainly enhanced by the facility. The Palladium is a visual treat, with a comfortable and welcoming ambiance. The acoustics are top notch, and the suspended glass panels an interesting feature. The volunteers are friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. It's obvious that most... More

Last night we visited the Palladium to see the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir/Symphony Orchestra perform Handel's Messiah. The performers did an awesome job and the venue was terrific. When I first called to make reservations, they were sold out, but they put me on a wait list in case more seats opened up. A few days later I received a call... More

We attend the Center for the Performing Arts a number of times a year, aiming at the more classical performances and sometimes the pop music. The site itself, (three venues of different sizes inside) is extraordinarily well done with most impressive architecture. While the popular performances are done quite well with a wide variety of artists, the Classical series is... More
