Berklee Performance Center Reviews
The venue was the Berklee Performance Center in Boston MA. It is easy to get to using the MBTA. The center is a perfect place for a concert. Acoustics were fabulous and the seating was great. Yann Tie... more »
Professional staff, accessible, great performances. Facilities on street level, talented performers, relevant content of shows. more »
Stunningly pro jazz performance by 4 vets; young and mature. Sensitive playing and listening all around with lots of flow changes in solos. Center sounded great as always.
This place is very narrow and deep. I tend to find the sound levels are a little loud at the front of the mezzanine. Berklee brings in great talent, of course, so the shows are great. There are a number of relatively convenient parking options nearby.
