Saw an amazing movie based musical performance at the Hershey theater yesterday. This Symphony is phenomenal. They also try to keep their ticket prices low so more people can enjoy the fine art of music.

It was an awesome holiday treat. It was the first ever sold out show for the orchestra and we were happy to be there. The conductor was so knowledgeable and explained each piece before it was played. It was a fun atmosphere and the kids enjoyed it and learned something in the process. Great time.

we went to a special Symphony event called The Piano Men. The music of Billy Joel and Elton John with the Symphony. It was a truly memorable experience. Beautiful venue. We'll be back!

This is one of the best volunteer orchestras I've seen. I saw their performance last night - Piano Men: The Music of Elton and Billy. What a wonderful blend of pop music with orchestra infusion. The theater itself is a lovely building, with top notch acoustics. The rows are very close, though, so you will have to climb over people... More

Always like the shows, whether Broadway, contemporary, or symphonic. And the atmosphere in the Hershey Theatre adds to the very enjoyable presentations and excellent presentation of the musicians.
