This is one beautiful venue. It is very large and the sound fills the chamber. Dont know what else to say about it.. except, just awesome. Coat check, was fast in and out... I loved the food and beverage lounge and seating area... very nice! Would I go there again? Most assuredly!

This is local to us, so we have been there many many times for both indoor and outdoor events and the shows have been fun nearly every time. We keep going back because of the quality of the performances. We will probably go keep going there because we are neighbors, but every event leaves a bad taste in the mouth...The... More

This is a beautiful contemporary venue with free parking in an above ground parking building. Spacious. Modern designs and lines. People are mostly dressed up, but not all. If you have a chance to go, do.

I usually go a couple of times a year. The last event was back in September. Saw Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds. Previously, I have seen such diverse acts like The Hip Hop Nutcracker, Rain-A Tribute to the Beatles, and Video Games Live. Acoustics are good throughout the venue. Good sight lines from all seats. I would highly recommend seeing... More

My wife and I attended our first performance at Strathmore last night (Mike Mills and Bobbie McDuffie's Rock Concerto) and we're already anxious to return. The facility is beautiful with comfortable and spacious seating , the acoustics are great, ticket prices reasonable and the parking is not only convenient but free. While I was initially apprehensive driving from Northern Virginia... More

This is such a great venue with lots of excellent seating options. One unique aspect is for some performances they open up seating above and behind the stage, so if you enjoy really seeing all of the instruments in motion, I recommend giving it a try. I live near Strathmore and tend to go to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra performances.... More

I have been to many performances of varying musical genres over the last several years at Strathmore: rock, folk, blues, jazz. I have yet to hear a symphony perform, but I did hear a classical violin solo without amplification which was amazing. I have to say the acoustics are as good as any I have ever experienced in our community... More

We love going to symphony concerts here. All seats are good. The orchestra is best for people who get warm, as the heat rises with each level. But you do have to go down a set of stairs or the elevator to get to the orchestra level. Food is now from Ridgewell Catering and very good. Get there early and... More

We saw Yiruma at The Music Center at The Strathmore and the acoustics were amazing! It is a modern music hall, with much more leg room than I have experienced in a concert hall. The staff were very helpful. Yiruma was absolutely amazing!
