Symphony Hall presents hundreds of years' worth of long-form instrumental, chamber and orchestral works written by the world's finest composers. The music, performed by leading ensembles and instrumentalists, is heard complete and unedited, the way in which it was meant to be presented. From great masterpieces to undiscovered gems, Symphony Hall is classical music at its best.

A couple years back I had about a 2 hour block from this channel saved under Radio Replays on my Stiletto, and I'd listen to it when I went to the library to study for exams. I'm not really a fan of classical music in normal situations, but for that purpose, the channel really came in handy.

Yeah, I'm not really into classical music either.

But the music is relaxing and I can see how it would work great with studying (or working on a project). It's also perfect for background music at the home or office.

I will add it as a preset on my computer (Stream_ON) and give it **** [Good]

A nice channel when you are stressed at work or anywhere else for that matter.

This rotates mostly with SPA as a going to sleep channel. :hatsoff:

4 of 5 stars

Symphony Hall has been one of my "C" presets since 2004. I can't say I listen to it all that often, but I always like it. Very beautiful music. 4 stars from me.

I truly enjoy classical music. It's something I was exposed to when I was young, and I have always enjoyed listening when it's on or when I feel like listening. I don't listen that often, but it's nice to know that Sirius/XM has a channel for this music so I can listen whenever I want to listen. The format is great and the DJ's are informative...:D

I give it 5 out of 5 Stars...:)

Symphony Hall is my favorite music channel on Sirius/XM and is a key reason I have multiple lifetime subscriptions, installed Sonos in my house and pay for the premium internet feed. The announcers are fantastic. I particularly like Preston Trombley and Martin Goldsmith. Siriusly Baroque on Sundays is also a great format. I'm appreciative that Sirius/XM invests in quality programing for those who appreciate it.

This station is the only reason I kept one of my 5 subscriptions. It is great to listen to while working and I love listening to in to and from church. The DJs are amazingly schooled in obscure facts. I love the random facts they throw out (like who took who's wife, composers paying musicians to sabotage other composers' performances, etc...).

I wholeheartedly agree. Symphony Hall is heaven for classical music lovers. I regularly record Elena See's overnight program on my SL2 and listen to it in the morning or when I don't have satellite signal. Her comments are not as elaborate as Trombly's or Goldsmith's, but she is still quite interesting.

This is one reason I have Sirius. Classical music is impossible to obtain outside big cities, except for brief programming on public radio. The classical of XM was always better, with many "live" concerts and special events presented. That is gone. It is more canned and they seem to have shorter less innovative or surprising playlists. I have to give it 4 stars just for being there.

I have been listening to Slacker's classical stations and they have an amazing amount of repeats!

Already one of my presets. Sometimes when I get my head right I really like listening to the Classical Music Channels.
