We had a great evening returning to the symphony for a Valentine's Day get away. Staff was wonderful, the drink selection was great, and the music was superb. Can't wait for the next show!

Powell Hall was once a movie palace, but it now shines as a concert hall while retaining its Roaring Twenties grandeur. It was really decked out for the holidays and the St. Louis Symphony performed a very joyous set of holiday favorites. My seat was...More

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.

While Powell Hall may not look too impressive from the outside, inside it is a beautiful concert hall with ornate decorations. Seats were also comfortable, too, with armrests for all patrons (not shared with an adjacent seat-holder). We attended a concert there and thought the...More

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.
