Powell Hall is one of America's most acoustically renowned and visually stunning concert halls—and home to your St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. We’re renovating and expanding the 98-year-old building to preserve and enhance our civic treasure for generations to come.
This project is inspired by you: our goal is to provide greater access to music, an even more welcoming and comfortable experience for all, and a creative hub that helps us build connections through the power of music.
Together with a team of world-class experts, we'll transform the audience and artistic experience while protecting Powell Hall’s historic character and celebrated acoustics. A 65,000-square foot expansion will encompass a collection of new spaces designed to inspire deeper community connection and collaboration.
While our musical home is bustling with construction, we'll embrace the opportunity to engage new audiences, showcase our extraordinary musicians, and share powerful musical experiences with you throughout our community.
The revitalized Powell Hall will open in 2025 to coincide with the building's centennial. We look forward to celebrating with you.
“We will preserve the history of Powell Hall while creating a state-of-the-art center for community, innovation, and powerful music experiences.”
