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

Absolute privilege taking in a world-class performance on the eve of the TSO's European Tour. Will definitely return in the future.

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.

We saw the orchestra play the music of Abba, and it was really fun. Energetic, exciting and great for all Abba lovers. The Toronto Symphony has done a really good job at inviting the non-traditional orchestra fan into their "club". The other events that are really neat are the events where they explain a piece of music, and what makes... More

My girlfriend took me to the music of James Bond that the Toronto Symphony put on a few months ago. It was absolutely amazing!! I like classical music well enough and would go to the TSO for anything, but when they do these special one night only events, they are can't miss. They did everything I would ever want to... More

Toronto Orchestra plays every Wednesday evening at Casa Loma and it is a real classy affair, with tables under tents, waiters, drinks & food available. Each week has a different theme. Just Excellent!
