The Philadelphia Orchestra did its usual masterful performance and with Opera Star Sheila Graham and the Conductor - playing off each other - with height and dress comments - the audience never stopped paying attention.

As one who uses a walker, the Kimmel Center is perfect for the disabled. The ticket was marked and the ability to get around the Center was so easy. Now the Vienna concert took us back to the concerts we attended in Vienna. Could not have been a better afternoon.

Christmas Concert was amazing and the selections put me in the Spirit! The acoustics in the concert hall provide a beautiful sound allowing the audience to hear all the wonderful instruments & voices.

My two grandsons were not very impressed. I thought we would be so happy to sing and really see something spectacular, as the show is named. But no, we kept waiting for the good fun to start. We won't be going again. Sorry we went. Not fun for kids. Beautiful music and dancing but not fun filled at all.

Great show. The music and the various characters were top notch. The conductor had a nice sense of humor which made the concert even more fun. The Kimmel Center is a great venue to see concerts and other events.
