just the right size - not too big! Music sounds the way it is supposed to sound, you can actually understand the words to a song. Great location, right downtown.

We went on a free conducted tour of the Winspear Centre, including light lunch. A chance to see what goes on behind the scenes is always good and this hall is impressive, with extensive facilities. it is well designed and we were sorry not have the opportunity to attend a concert.

I've been to the Winspear Centre several times for plays and concerts. Not a bad seat in the house. The accoustics are great and the views are good. Parking has never been a big problem.

Renowned for its wonderful acoustics, Winspear Centre is definitely worth a visit. Try to catch a concert by the Edmonton Symphony for a true treat. No bad seats anywhere!
