A night at the Winspeare watching the ESO is such a unique experience. The audience runs the gamut and you'll see everything from jeans to formal wear most nights (though if you're going to a Masters' performance there will be very few in jeans).

For a city our size I think we have a very fine symphony. I enjoy their performances immensely. The Winspear acoustics make sounds delicious and sparkling, but also very clear, so when this group perform exceptionally you know it. We've has some terrific guests this season as well. Our organ is pretty marvellous too.

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
