    Don't get tickets on the upper tier- It was way to hot, the air wasn't circulating and I almost fainted-

    So impressed with this beautiful facility! Convinced my Aunt to walk the sky bridge on the 4th level (that takes you from the parking lot, directly to the facility). And the staff were great as well!

    Lower box seats or Orchestra seats are the best location to enjoy a performance. Side box seats are less comfortable because you have to sit with your head turned toward your shoulder to view stage.

    Not a bad seat in the house, with free parking in the garage for concert hall shows. Keep an eye on their website for added shows.

    A really wonderful venue to see your favorite performer. Arrive early and enjoy a somewhat overpriced meal on the terrace. Had the salmon tonight, it was very good. It was also nice to have a beer.

    The Baltimore Symphony performs here, but try to see them at The Meyerhoff concert hall in Baltimore sometime. The acoustics are much better than they are at Strathmore.
