    I've been here for an orchestra concert. The acoustics and sound is amazing from every seat. It is a beautiful concert hall. It is simply marvelous from the first step you take inside.

    The inside of the concert hall is simply amazing to look at, and it carries sound like nowhere else I've been. Saw the Philadelphia Orchestra here and it was brilliant.

    If you are here to see the Flash in Time Show for the PIFA celebration, stand in front of the stage towards the cafe area for optimal viewing

    Don't try to take pictures. Those ushers are quick. Although no one really knows why you can't take a picture of the orchestra during warmup or intermission. Gotta make the ushers earn their pay?

    Pretty cool in here isn't it? It gets better. Check out the Dorrance H. Hamilton Roof Garden built on top of the Perelman Theater - it's spectacular.

    In the heart of downtown Philadelphia, located on one of the most famous streets in America. Broad street and the Kimmel Center are truly the City of Brotherly Love's premiere hot spots. Don't Miss it

    See the Philadelphia Orchestra for just $8 ($10 if you book online) with a student ID. Tickets go on sale 90 minutes before showtime, and availability can be limited. Can't beat the price!
