Fodor's Review

This gilt-wood jewel box of a stage is the preferred venue for many of Boston's classical orchestras and the home of Harvard University's many ensembles. The 180-degree stage design and superb acoustics afford intimacy and crystal projection. A favorite of folk, jazz, and world-music performers, the 1,166-seat Sanders hosts the holiday favorite, Christmas Revels, a traditional, participatory Yule celebration. Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Leonard Bernstein, and Teddy Roosevelt have lectured at this famed seat of oratory and music.
