Family friendle atmosphere

This ok my 7 yr old to the meridian symphony performance - great performance and atmosphere. The seats are small because this is an old, restored opera house.

Recently attended a civic event in the historic Riley Center. Amazed at the beautiful woodwork. Looking forward to attending a concert. Would definitely host a wedding beautifully.

Great show! The music was great! It was fun to hear the stories and people that inspired some of his songs.

We were fortunate to be in Meridian when Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra were performing at the Riley Center operated by Mississippi State University. The concert was fantastic and the venue is phenomenal. This old opera house has been completely restored with every detail preserved from the past. The horseshoe shape of the theater was amazing....

The perfect venue to experience both the Music and the Performer. A small theater with great acoustics. No need for a large screen to bring the Performer close to you. All of the seats are good seats. We enjoyed the concert and the Riley Center itself. Loved the history.

We hosted an event at the MSU Riley Center and were blown away by the history and picturesque beauty of the building! The MSU Riley Center is even more stunning in person and our teams couldn't get over how great it was to work a weekend in such a beautiful place! We worked with Michele on all of our bookings...

This is by far the best performing arts theatre in the surrounding area. The acoustics, as well as the view are great. The local arts community does a tremendous job of bringing in acts and groups for the local school children and the community. They have groups that appeal to a variety of tastes. It is a class act venue.

Great acoustics. Beautiful setting. Comfortable seating. Parking was our only complaint. Dark streets in a not very safe area. Had to walk several blocks. I do understand they are now working on streets so maybe this will change.
