Benson Great Hall

Benson Great Hall is one of the finest performing arts centers in St. Paul and Minneapolis area, hosting concerts, performances, conferences, and more. Our comfortable seating, excellent acoustics, and friendly staff make it the perfect venue to take in a concert or event. The suspended acoustic canopy reflects sound to both audience and performers. In addition, the hall’s unique truss system and motorized rigging allow for creative stage design. Other signature features include a 4,000 pipe, a 67-rank Blackinton organ, and a thrust extension on the main stage.

Wheelchair-accessible seating is available on the main floor in front of the Mezzanine. Please advise a ticket representative of accessible seating needs when ordering tickets or contact the Ticket Office at any time.
