“Architectually brilliant and wonderful accoustics”
Review of Koerner Hall

Koerner Hall
Ranked #24 of 90 Concerts & Shows in Toronto
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 May 2017

I just had the opportunity to be in Koerner Hall for the second time to enjoy the wonderful Tafelmusik Orchestra and Choir.
The Orchestra was lead by their new Musical Director in, what
I would call, a soft opening, as she actually doesn't officially take over until the new season that opens in September.
If you happen to be in Toronto when the orchestra is playing either at Koerner Hall or in their regular home at recently restored Trinity-St Paul Church (just down the road on Bloor Street) do go and hear some musical magic.
Then again if there is "anything" on at Koerner Hall don't miss
the opportunity to see and hear how wonderful it is!!

I go to concerts in Koerner Hall several times a year. The variety of performances is incredible. Every music lover will find a performance they like. Koerner Hall also introduced me to new music by bringing in musicians ,who are not necessarily household names. The architecture alone is worth the price of admission. And if you budget is really low, they have several free concerts during the year. The program they publish is very informative and well put together. Koerner Hall is one of the best places to hear music in Toronto.

We saw Alex Cuba there April 7, 2017 and it was a very enjoyable show. There isn't a bad seat in the house and it is very clean. We were a little disappointed when we walked in and told the staff that it was pretty warm and they didn't seemed overly concerned or planned to do anything about it. They could have been more sensitive on their response and say they'd look into it. As I said the acoustics are very good but it would have helped if the folks (Mayfair?) had done a better live mix to maximize the high quality house PA. Alex's guests that night included his dad on guitar/vocals, a pianist, 3 great horn players along with Steve Cuddy. The horns were not brought to the volume deserved or appropriate which was quite disappointing. In fact the guests pianist who was also VERY good, (quite strangely) sounded more like a synthesizer to steel-drum at times. Maybe not Koerner's fault.

We have been to Koerner on many occasions and find the ambiance and acrostics to be of the highest standard and a challenger to any hall in any country. When you hear a concert at Koerner you will be awed by the colour and warmth of the sounds and visual beauty of the space.

This is in my opinion the best place to listen to a concert in Toronto. The seats are comfortable, the size is perfect and the hall has excellent acoustics. It is outstanding for vocal concerts.
