“Ok for Toronto”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

Place is ok. Torontonians still cant learn the fact the you have to dress up when you go to the symphony orchestra, as the result you have people dressed up as they ran to the nearest hamburger place. Director of the place has some narcissistic traits but its ok. Acoustin is acceptable.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We have an incredible symphony in Toronto! More locals need to go out and support the TSO! Peter Oundjian is an incredible music director! We are so very lucky to have him. If you are visiting Toronto, or looking for a fabulous evening, go out and support the TSO!

Attended Toronto Symphony Orchestra performances several years ago, with my mother who had a season's subscription. Great accoustics at Roy Thomson Hall.
