The performance center is modern, clean and comfortable. A big step up from the old Academy of Music. Orchestra concerts are very enjoyable. You can even have a 5 star pre concert dinner upstairs. My only regret is that I don't have time to get here more often.

Love the artwork inside the Kimmel Center! Buidling is beautiful and the seats inside each of the stages are comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the coffee and somewhat healthy desert and snack offerings at the snack bar. When we were there they ran out of lids and heat protectors for the coffee cups, however. And, it was hard to get... More

Home of the Philadelphia Orchestra in its magnificent hall. Also involved the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia in a smaller hall and lots of other open space for snacking, popup art and resting plus a three star restaurant that's a little pricey for Philly. Right in the center of the city on Broad St.

This is a great place to see a concert. I've only been there once, but would go back in a heartbeat. It's very well designed.

We sat in level 3 looking right down on the front of the stage - great view at a reasonable price. My sisters and I would rather sit on level 2 or 3 rather then the floor level.

This is a relatively new concert hall of great proportions and spectacular modern design. The home of the Philadelphia Orchestra, one of the Big Five symphony and of the very popular Philly Pops. The center has other theater venues dedicated to special performance. In the heart of the city it is surrounded by other performance venues and many highly rated... More
