Originally known as “The Municipal Auditorium,” the Symphony Hall building was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century (between the 1911 and 1913). The Auditorium was extensively refurbished and reopened in 1980 as Symphony Hall, and the interior of the building was renovated in 2004.   

The Springfield Symphony Hall is current home to the Springfield Symphony Orchestra (SSO). They performed their first concert in the Hall in 1944. They hold Education Connection Youth Concerts annually, with Maestro Rhodes welcoming thousands of grade school children to Springfield Symphony Hall for special symphonic performances.

The Hall is also home to Broadway-style theatre, with theatrical performances including comedies, dramas and musicals, therefore internationally recognized speakers, as well as numerous concerts and performances.
