Edmonton Symphony take the show on the road for the past 20 years and present a performance in the Hawrelak Park Amphitheatre. The themes change during the run, this year the performances were held from Thursday to Sunday evenings. For certain Edmonton Winspear, the normal home of the Edmonton Symphony is a glorious, world-class venue.

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
