The building looks modern, and fits well in modernistic/futuristic architectural picture of the Churchill square.
The acoustics is good in the hall, specially in front part (sound is somewhat bland, to my taste, at edges).

If driving, try to park few blocks away: exiting the main parking facility (underneath the square and the library) may take up to an hour after a concert.

My boyfriend took me to the symphony for my birthday this tear, and it was phenomenal. We booked pretty late so we ended up sitting fairly high up, but the sound was still amazing. The musicians in the symphony are great! We went to the Hollywood show, and recognized so many of the songs. I can't wait to go back!

The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (ESO) is a real cultural treasure. The ESO has an annual promotion where any seat in the house is $26.00. We have been extremely fortunate to tap into this resource and have booked four and five concerts a year of some of the great music from our classic and contemporary past.

The ESO is very talented; I have heard some of my favorite pieces played to perfection, each nuance respected and clarified in a treatment and sound that would make any composer very proud. I do enjoy the ESO for all that they contribute to our cultural profile as a major Canadian city.

In addition to the orchestra being one of Canada's more respected groups, they are home in the extraordinary Winspear Centre, Edmonton's contribution to the great music venues in the world.

Take the time to sit, relax and revel in a tincture of pure musical bliss. You really won't regret it.

Edmonton is blessed with a world class symphony orchestra. We are treated to phenomenal performances every time. The guest soloists that are brought in for each concert are amazing. Tonight we were treated to a virtuoso performance of Saint- Saen's "Egyptian" piano concerto with Stewart Goodyear on piano, followed by Mendelssohn's "Scottish" Symphony. A wonderful evening, and typical for what to expect at an ESO concert. If you are fortunate enough to live in Edmonton, you ought to subscribe, or at least attend frequently. If you are visiting, make it a point to book tickets for a concert. You won't regret it!
