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.

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.

The building itself is wonderful but the real beauty is sitting anywhere inside and listening to the music. I have been several times and never found a bad seat. An evening at the Winspear is a most enjoyable experience.

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.
