The Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, often referred to simply as the Meyerhoff, is a music venue that opened September 16, 1982, at 1212 Cathedral Street in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland, United States. The main auditorium has a seating capacity of 2,443 and is home to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. It is named for Joseph Meyerhoff, a Ukrainian-Jewish Baltimore businessman, philanthropist, and arts patron who served as president of the Baltimore Symphony from 1965 to 1983.
The modern style structure was designed by the architectural firms of Pietro Belluschi, Inc. and Jung/Brannen Associates. Ground was broken November 10, 1978. Acoustical design was by Bolt, Beranek and Newman and uses a series of convex curves to avoid flat surfaces or ninety-degree angles inside the hall.

Very nice. Saw John Williams conduct BSO there... fantastic. 4 stars for every concert hall because too few toilets. Let's be real. That's ALWAYS an issue at intermission. Bring cash to park too. Its 2018 but concert halls and their surrounding lots/garages have no idea what a Square is.

My orchestra (yes, it is mine, and yours, too) is the best orchestra I could ever imagine. I recently became a member of the BSO and my wife and I have went to performances twice over the last few weeks. Their student passport program provides incredible value for graduate students, with free passes to a number of shows and $10 add-on tickets. I saw them perform a pop/rock show with a Vegas performer during our first visit and Mahler and Beethoven pieces the second. On both occasions, I was blown away. Also, the orchestra hall is incredible.

Never fails to entertain and inspire. Love ALL the conductors! Season tickets for pops series would be a great introduction to the space. Went to outstanding Bernstein celebration ( 2 standing ovations), wish the music at the after party was danceable and that chocolate cake was still available.

The home to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has excellent acoustics for enjoying classical music. It's a beautiful space. There are pre-ordered catered meals available and bar service at intermission. Get a mixed drink as the wine alternatives leave much to be desired. The closest parking garage only accepts cash on symphony nights.

I really like BSO. On average I go to their concert every 2 weeks. As a Hopkins student I can just buy a season pass for $35 and have access to almost all programs in the year, which is really nice. Every once in a while they have a movie concert where they play the movie on the screen and they play the music in the movie. Its absolutely amazing.
