Excellent Music Venue
Apr 18, 2014 by: laser20814 from Bethesda, Maryland
Excellent acoustics are the hallmark of this modern concert hall. Parking is difficult and expensive but there is on site Metro access. Usually bookings are a step down from the Kennedy Center but the occasional big name shows up.
Fine performance venue

Fine place for concerts in suburban Maryland. It is great that parking is free; it is also accessible by subway from DC and Northern Virginia. Many world class musicians perform here.
This place is amazing

Beautiful surroundings for an amazing concert hall which is, for once, not in DC, but has great programming. Children's tickets are free for all National Philharmonic concerts, and Citydance, a great dance company, has all its shows there. The president's daughter dances there! We have seen many shows over the years there, but I would especially recommend anything with the choir. Hundreds of people singing with the orchestra make it for a fabulous event. They regularly have Mozart's Requiem and Handel's Messiah. Also, they host the Russian Ballet for the Nutcracker in winter, which is always a joy.
The venue alone is worth the visit

The Music Center at Strathmore is one of the treasures of the DC area cultural scene. Since its opening in 2005, the 1,976-seat concert hall and center offers world-class performances, spanning virtually all entertainment areas, from the resident Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to rock and roll acts like The Moody Blues and Jethro Tull. More than 150 performances a year are offered, and include classical music, world music, dance, comedians, cultural porsonalities, and I could go on and on. The concert hall has some of the best acoustics one is ever likley to encounter. Almost as terrific are the concert series held in the Mansion on site, where an intimate audience (not more than 100) can get up close and personal to an extraordinary range of musical artists, many of them just beginning their professional careers, other local area favorites. (There's a great gift shop there too!) Visitors to the DC area are well-advised to take a look at upcoming performances at the Center on their website - www.strathmore.org and to include a visit to Strathmore.
Strathmore is great.

I live near Strathmore and feel fortunate that it is so close by. It's a beautiful concern hall that brings big name entertainment. Tonight I saw Josh Turner and he was great.
