We went to the season opener in the Landmark Homes Masters series, Glory of the Organ. Wonderful first half of classical music, featuring mostly strings. Brass, drums, percussion and harpist joined for the second half. It was a delight to see and hear Paul Jacobs, world renowned organist play. From our seats in the Orchestra section, we could see his... More

The Edmonton Symphony is world class. Symphony in the Park is one of my favourite events. I prefer the lighter classics and Robbins pop series. They perform at the winspear which is a world class performing arts center.

Public performances & accessibility - nice! Just shows you that a large concert hall isn't necessary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgPeegnV_48

The program is broad, with something for everyone, and guest artists and conductors are drawn from the broader global community of musicians and performers. A very... More

I always go to a great many performances (most of the seasons) of the ESO. They are consistent and talented, however the performers always look morose and don't seem to be that fond of their charismatic conductor William Eddins, who is always the best part of the evening due to his humour and enthusiasm. Current concertmaster Uchida is extraordinary. But... More

This is a very good group of players, who are currently under the direction of Bill Eddins, His tenure is drawing to a close and so a new conductor will be chosen soon. ESO has a great reputation and definitely gets the job done!
