Best concert venue in Edmonton

The acoustics in the Winspear Centre are wonderful. I have seen several concerts here including a couple of classical concerts where the amazing pipe organ was featured.

The Winspear is a great venue and has amazing shows, including Lion King and Wicked. The staff is amazing and even called me when my grandma was at a show and her ride home didn't show up.

My Husband and I and friends attended a comedy show at the Windspear in May. The Venue was great. Sitting was good and it seemed visibility would be good from any seat. Clean and tidy. My Only concern was the parking. They really need to improve upon that.

A few years ago, hosted a concert at this theatre but was too busy to enjoy it. Went to watch a show a few months ago and the music at this theatre is so good it is unreal. Highly recommended.

The sound quality in this venue is superb. I attended a university graduation there and was pleasantly surprised that I could hear absolutely every single word perfectly, no matter who was speaking. Seating allows you to have great views no matter where you sit. Beautiful!

The Winspear is a magnificent venue! It is a pleasure to walk through the front doors. The sound system is second to none and I highly recommend watching the plays and shows that are featured here!

We've seen many concerts at this venue (from classical to folk to rock) and the seats, view, and acoustics are fantastic. Love this place.

Attended the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra here in May, and what a treat! The sound quality in this venue is amazing, and I finally got a chance to hear that pipe organ get played as though the world depended on it. Quite a romantic and classy place to enjoy a concert, the Winspear is also located near some very nice restaurants... More

I went to see 3 of the best Elvis Impersonators there about 1 year ago. Great show and the sound was fantastic. Not a bad seat in the whole place.
