Our son is a potential student at NEC so we wanted to see a concert at the famous hall as we visited music schools in Boston. It didn’t disappoint! If you want a less expensive option in town, check out a performance at Jordan.

A wonderful somewhat intimate concert hall. Not many bad seats. Excellent acoustics. Parking lot is a block away. A great place to take in a concert.

Every day, several times a day, you can find here great performances and most of them are for free. Look for Jordan Hall Calender.

Jordan Hall has wonderful accoustics and sightlines. However, the seating layout is very odd. Sections can be impossible to access without going through a row of seating first (and disturbing everyone who is seated). Be aware, especially if you are handicapped or don't move too...More

victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical

For something casual and quick there is a Paneta across the street. For fine dining there are dozens of restaurants near the Prudential Center and Copley Place neighborhood just 15 minute walk from the concert hall.
