“Helzberg Hall is spectacular, with an astonishingly warm, present sound. Seating sections surround the stage, giving the handsome hall an excitingly intimate feel. It is one of the most enjoyable, exhilarating arts centers I’ve been to, a moving celebration of a city’s upward trajectory.” – Zachary Woolfe, NYT
