The Winspear is a great venue for sound. Just love this place and looking forward to seeing Colin James in March 2015. Saw a few shows there over the years, most recently Chicago in March 2014.

Have been season ticket holders since the Winspear's opening. The Edmonton Symphony is superb & the setting & acoustics are first rate.

One of Edmonton most beautiful places. World class room with world class performances. I've seen many performances here from rock and folk music, theatre, orchestras, to choirs and spoken word productions and everyone of them was enhanced by the venue.

Saw the Edmonton Sympony hear not too long ago and Sarah McLachlan more recently. Both performances were very enjoyable. The overall atmospere, service of the staff and presence of the Winspear is Total Class. My wife and I enjoy ourselves at this venue whenever we go. Great acoustics for live music and excellent decore and ambience. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous venue, great sound. Always very clean. The top balcony is very high and I don't recommend it if you are afraid of heights.

Great sound, fantastic ambiance, a real Edmonton landmark in the heart of the city. Surrounded by the art museum, the Citadel Theater and several posh hotels like the Sheraton, or the boutique Union Bank Inn
