Home of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra since 1966, Powell Symphony Hall began life in the 1920s as a vaudeville hall and movie palace. The 2,700-seat facility has been magnificently restored and remodeled, featuring chandeliers and grand staircases. The entry area was designed to emulate the Louis XIV Chapel at Versailles and includes a spectacular stained glass window of St. Louis on a horse. A permanent orchestra shell, rather than an orchestra pit, was included in the refurbishing of the theater to provide better sound. World-renowned performers including Isaac Stern have praised the hall's acoustics.
