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.

The ESO plays in the Winspear Centre, one of North America's premier concert halls. The main conductor, William Eddins, has built a huge following with his enthusiasm, talent and fireside chats with the audience. 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!

We really enjoy the performances we attend. There is lots of variety and we have always found it uplifting! In the past our children have always enjoyed the Symphony for Kids performances and now our grandchildren are enjoying them.

Had an amazing time watching this with my wife. Being surrounded by adults and children alike, this was a surreal experience shared among many. I was fortunate enough to watch the production of 'die fledermaus' a week prior. We're looking into season tickets as a result. Thank you ESO

We attend the symphony regularly at home and in our travels, and feel so privileged to have such a world class orchestra in an outstanding concert hall. This past week's performance was a lovely example of the talented local musicians who positively shone. Conductor Bill Eddins, young conductor Lucas Walden, guest SUTS conductor Bob Bernhart all bring their own flair... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the ESO and the Richard Eatons Singers performance of Handel's Messiah. The acoustics of the Winspear are great.
