Great acoustics and lovely venue. I have sung on the stage and heard multiple concerts here, as well. It is a gem in the Edmonton arts community.

Excellent sound quality for my son`s convocation. It was my first time at the Winspear and I know now that the accolades it has received are truly deserved. No complaints at all.

This is a world-class concert hall with excellent acoustics and great seating. No seat is a bad one in this concert hall.

I heard Brandi Carlile here with the ESO. It was outstanding! The music was fantastic, and the hall definitely added to the experience. The acoustics were so great that Brandi sang several songs acapello. It was amazing! I really recommend catching a concert here on a visit to Edmonton. Beverages and coat check are available. Easy to get to on... More

Suzuki School has their Spring concert at this fabulous venue every year. The sound is incredible in this beautiful building and I always enjoy the music performed by the talented students.

If you have never been to the Winspear, I suggest you treat yourself to the most beautiful acoustics ever heard in this city.

The Winspear Centre is definitely the best venue for concerts! Musically, the whole place is designed for the ultimate sound experience. Can't get anything better for a music event -- have attended a number of concerts there and never hesitate to attend something held at the Winspear!

We purchased season tickets (Robins Pops Friday) for the past season and have not been disappointed in any performance. Quite on the contrary, I usually return home inspired, dust off my piano and play it a little! Very worthwhile to try out if you've never been, the sound is absolutely second to none!

The Winspear Centre has the best acoustics for any type of concert. The facility does not have a bad seat in it. Located in the Heart of Edmonton, with major hotels, fine dining, bars,public transportation & parking nearby. Take in a performance if you can!
