We attended two events: Handel's Messiah and the Christmas holiday concert. Both were great. If you could attend one of these events at Christmas time, even if you do not go to classical concerts, these are worth the time and money.

Powell Hall is a gorgeous historic venue. We attended the Amos Lee concert there. The entire staff is so helpful and efficient. The seats are very comfortable. The acoustics were excellent. Would definitely come back to the Powell.

Went to see a showing of North by Northwest with music provided by STL symphony. The show was great, the music beautifully done, but the show stopper was the building itself. Whatever you might see there, take time to appreciate the building and its opulence.
