My daughter got tickets for us to see ET while the Symphony played the musical score. This was the first time I have actually seen the movie from start to finish. The music was fantastic and I enjoyed watching the symphony as well as the movie. A night to remember.

Last night I went to see the BSO play the soundtrack to the movie E.T. the Extra Terrestrial. It was an impressive performance. That soundtrack was one of the things to get me into music and to hear it with the movie was amazing. The hall itself is a little strange looking to me and functional. It was a good... More

This concert was wonderful. It was a celebration of the Irish on St. Patrick's Day weekend. They had singers and dancers.

I hadn't been to the Meyerhoff in many years. I found a deal on living social for the Nutcracker and I bought 4 tickets. We were able to park just across the street in a garage and prepay so as not to congest traffic (I think it was $10). I was worried because my living social app wasn't working but... More

This hall which dates from the early '80s was the last in a line of four halls that were designed in a similar style by one acoustician - Ted Schulz of Bolt Beranek and Newman. None of the halls were successful acoustically but Meyerhoff was the best of them. I enjoyed listening to the concert and there was some work... More

If you are in Baltimore when the Baltimore Symphony is performing, you owe it to yourself to go to the concert. The musicians are fantastic. And the conductor, Marin Alsop, is charming and funny and makes the music accessible. She was the first woman to be hired as conductor of a major American orchestra. We went to the performance on...

This symphony hall is beautiful and impressive. I attended a large graduation ceremony here and the venue, from the lobby to the seats and the ambiance to the sound quality were all superior. There are several parking garages conveniently located within just a few blocks in several different directions.
