What a delightful evening at Powell Symphony Hall which was decked out for the holiday season. Beautiful on its own extra special around the holidays. The orchestra played a wide variety of works by several different composers. Each more enchanting then the last. It was a totally enjoyable evening and great way to start the New Year. It is a...

On this trip to St Louis we were thrilled to find Jim Brickman was to be in concert at Powell Symphony Hall, one of my favorite artists at one of my favorite venues. We were able to get last minute matinee seats. There is a certain comfort to this venue. Home to the St Louis Symphony this venue offers so... More

We were at the Candlelight Christmas Concert last week when the Bach Society and St. Louis Children's Choir performed; it was so beautiful! Powell Hall is lovely inside especially when decorated for the holidays. Looks like the opera halls of Europe! I always enjoy going there.

I love coming to Powell Hall for concerts. Beautiful venue, wonderful music, comfortable seats, full service bar, helpful attendants all make for a nice evening out. We park in one of the parking lots next to the hall for $10. It's well worth the money to have your car in an attended lot. Grand Avenue was beautiful coming off the... More

Lots of character in this hall and very good acoustics. Went to see Jeremy Denk play a Mozart concerto and he didn't disappoint. Two encores too. Not crowded and surprised the place wasn't packed. Easy to navigate and find our seats. I'll come back.

Powell Symphony Hall... Why haven't I spent more time here? Absolutely breathtaking. I've lived here my whole life and this is the first time I've been here in my adult life (today for Harry Potter in concert). The building is unbelievably beautiful and has so much history. From the chandeliers in the hall to the auditorium and the incredible room... More

We went to Powell Hall to see Michael Cavanaugh sing Billy Joel and it was outstanding. We usually see classical presentations with our excellent St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, but this was a first for us seeing contemporary music performed in the Hall. Excellent show! Incredibly talented young man had the whole house up and clapping. We really enjoyed it.

This is a superb St. Louis establishment. I come at least once a year for the Christmas concert and I love it. I also came for Valentine's Day and it was so special. I recommend sitting in the balcony to have a full view of the stage.

We came Friday night for the music of Michael Jackson. It was my first visit. Parking was easy as we arrived early enough for street parking. Meters cut off at 7. The theater is small and quaint making all seats good. There's a wine bar called the Dark Room less than a block away for wine and food options. We... More

We attended a Michael Jackson tribute at Powell Symphony Hall and had an excellent time. There is adequate parking just adjacent to the building for $10. This isn't considered a really safe area, but it felt safe. The venue itself is nicely done with great acoustics and not a bad seat in the place. The bathroom lines move quickly and... More
