Gem of Edmonton

This is an excellent venue! No 'bad' seats. Top notch performers and best sound system in the city. It's size is an added bonus no stadium crowds here.

Loved the acoustics and royal feeling of the building. Everything was kept in exceptionally beautiful condition. Loved the balcony seating and the view even from the top tier. All of our family were very happy with the venue including the customer service. Great access for parking as well.

We have heard acoustic and electric rock, folk, spoken word and lots of classical music. When the Winspears donated towards construction, they wanted an amazing acoustic hall. They've achieved it! A truly wonderful music hall.

Magnificent venue! Not a bad seat in the house, I tend to choose lower seating around 10 - 20 rows, on this occasion I sat in the balcony, still phenomenal acoustics, unobstructed view, wonderful facility! =)

The Winspear Center has great sound. Not once have I been disappointed with a show there. The Christmas concert is amazing.

To visit the Winspear Centre without going to a concert, I am not sure if this can be done, but to take in a 'Pops' concert, or listen to the pipe organ in concert, or the full orchestra playing the classics, the place is wonderful. With the wave of the Maestro's baton, sound fills the building and your whole body,... More

If you have an opportunity to visit the Winspear - take it. The acoustics in this building are absolutely first rate and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Have attended several performances from Ziggy Marley to the International Jazz Festival. Love the Winspear!

The Winspear offers a touch of class and an obvious connection to the community. The attention to detail, comfort and quality has always impressed me and makes the wait outside the auditorium much more pleasant.
