Beautiful concert hall - Saw Chris Botti

Beautiful concert hall. Went at the last minute to a Chris Botti concert along with the symphony. Seats were very high up but the song was great. Very enjoyable

Concert was superb. Rachmaninov No.2 and Beethoven's 9th. All around a fantastic experience! No bad seats in the house. We had a box on the 2nd tier. Great atmosphere!

Not always an exciting season but excellent musicians and good selection of soloists. Benaroya Hall has good seats everywhere.

A perfect way to start the holiday season! We miss Marvin Hamlish but the new Pops conductor did a great job. Our seats were fantastic!
