Always friendly and helpful if you need directions and/or to find your seats. In Feb. saw three separate shows with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (ESO). They provided the lead and background...

A great Musical Venue. I have had the pleasure to both perform on stage and enjoy the performances in the audience. For a performer the sound is so clear and crisp. You realize what a gem this venue is when you rehearse with no audience, the sound envelops you. This venue makes every performance very special. I highly recommend you... More

The Winspear Center is a world class concert hall. It seats up to 2,000 people. It houses a colossal pipe organ. The Windspear Center is a perfect venue for singer/songwriters, bands, dance groups, choirs, musical theatre groups, opera, public speakers, and it is the home of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. I’ve appeared as part of a backup band on stage... More

The Winspear is an excellent and modern performance venue with fantastic acoustics and visibility from all seating areas and easy accessibility for all. Located in the core of downtown Edmonton with parkade parking within close proximity. Staff are approachable and friendly. This venue promotes a variety of performances for adult and family entertainment.

The Winspear sparkles in more ways than one. Its acoustics make every seat in the house a great place to hear from. The design of the building is modern yet warm and reminiscent of European opera houses, without the boxes. The staff is friendly, the choice of artists eclectic and Bill Eddins, the principal conductor of the ESO, marvellous. Eddins'... More

You can see the stage pretty well from anywhere in the venue and it was... More

I have seen several concerts here over the years. Great acoustics and a more intimate setting to enjoy your favourite artists. Centrally located with easy access by public transportation. Plenty of nearby public parking if driving.

I have sang several times with my choir at the Winspear Centre and I have attended many concerts. The acoustics is great. This is the best concert hall in Alberta.

The Circe de Soleil Valentine's Day Orchestral Performance was world class. I have never seen acrobatics performed to classical music before. The thunderous Davis organ nearly took my breath away. Outstanding and memorable evening.
