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

One of the better places to go in Edmonton, the Winspear is an exceellent concert hall with a rich flavor of different music. We went to Schererazade, excellent performance!

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.

I have been to a few of the performances of the symphony and while they are not the best I have ever heard, they are very good. I especially love the frequency of guest performances/conductors they have. Annual events are a staple for many such as the Symphony in the Park performances in Hawrelak Park that's usually sold out.

I have been to the ESO often and it has always been a pleasure. They have a fresh approach and are always good for a surprise. They entertain children with classical music and do it in a Disney-style which is lovely. The venue they play at makes for an amazing sound experience. They never seem to get boring.

We did not have reserved seating but we brought a blanket to the concert. A very romantic evening with food, wine, and music. Would recommend this experience to everyone.
