Terrific experience. He acoustics in Roy Thompson hall are amazing. Sit in the cheap seats and the view is just as good, if not better than in the expensive ones. Besides you're there to listen not watch! Love this experience

After a huge day doing tourism stuff in Toronto, concluding with a great beer tour, I arrived at the TSO concert a bit scruffy and worse for wear, but the Torontonian audience weren't a sniffy lot. The program was Gershwin and quite wonderful, concluding with the Porgy and Bess concert suite, lovingly and movingly delivered. The witty repartee from the... More

Enjoying performances at the Roy Thomson Hall has always been my favourite thing to do after dinner. If you are lucky, go purchase tickets at the box office thirty minutes before the performance starts and you'll get AMAZING tickets (normally worth 80+) for only 20 dollars each. Always world class performance. The annual Yuja Wang performances are my personal favourites.
