The Strathmore Music Center is a terrific performing arts space. It is as acoustically perfect as a large concert hall can be. My wife and attended the the US Navy Band Concert celebrating the 242 Anniversary of the establishment of the U.S. Navy. The acoustics...More

Sight and Sound... there’s not a bad seat in the house! From the closest orchestra seat to the farthest corner of the upper balcony, every seat is perfect. Quite remarkable really.

Strathmore is easy to get to and park at with a good auditorium and good program of performances over the year. Its pre performance dinning area is small, especially in the winter, and not particularly comfortable.

We regularly visit Strathmore Music Center for concerts, and whether it is a full symphony orchestra or a solo recital by our friend, pianist Brian Ganz, the acoustics are outstanding. The building is dramatic, and parking for concerts is free at the Metro garage connected...More

We are so lucky to have a beautiful music venue in Montgomery County. BSO is a wonderful orchestra, programs are quite varied and accommodate all types of musical tastes. Sure beats fighting traffic and pay outrageous parking fees at the Kennedy Center.

Aesthetically pleasing, metro accessible, plenty of parking. Went most recently to watch a free outdoor movie. Really great time. Only suggestion--could have more food trucks. Ben & Jerry's was there, though! Have attended concerts there in the past. Love this place!

It's nice to have a concert venue in the suburbs so conveniently near a Metro stop. The acoustics are stellar anywhere. I frequently purchase tickets far back to save a few dollars and still enjoy the show.

1st time inside the venue to see DRUMline Live & it was all the way live, an entertaining & interactive production. Precursor to the performance, getting to the MCAS was a breeze, as it's a 5 minute walk from the Grosvenor/Strathmore Metro Station - Red...More

I am not aware that that particular orchestra played at Strathmore. If you check the Strathmore partners there is no mention of it. That does not mean that at some point in time it did not occur, it just means that I am... More
