I'm a fan of the TSO, especially the POPs concerts. But they are very talented and Roy Thompson Hall is a wonderful venue ... not a bad view in the house.

We always enjoy the TSO and they have special concerts for young kids with pre performance chats and chances for kids to ask questions or try out instruments etc. They are specially themed for kids. We've been to many concerts and our little guy is addicted to it. Their Messiah performance was by far the best performance in the city... More

For many years we had season tickets for the Roy Thomson Hall where the Toronto Symphony plays. We loved going.

The orchestra is always excellent and the view/accoustics are good from any seats. We always get cheaper seats in the upper balconies, since you can hear just as well. Two cautions - there are very limited/crowded washroom facilities in the building and all drinks are very expensive. We always have pre-concert dinner at the Penelope Greek restaurant next door since... More

Always a wonderful night out. The TSO always has a variety of symphonies on that appeal. Great date night, close to restaurants or places for drinks before or after the show.

Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) is in danger of losing subscriptions and possibly in danger of continuing its existence. This is because many of its supporters are elderly and they are not being replaced by younger patrons. This is a real shame as TSO is a world class orchestra. They have done a lot to attract younger patrons by featuring shorter... More

We are longtime subscribers to the TSO. Great music in a wonderful venue. If you have never been before, try it and discover what you have been missing.

I love the TSO and I've been seeing them perform for almost a decade. Some people talk about the beauty of Roy Thomson Hall. I, personally, think it's pretty ugly. The performace hall within though, it nicely finished with wood, and the acoustics (having been much improved over the last few years) are great. The TSO consistently features a blend... More
