I live in Toronto and love the TSO. I am there once or twice a week. If you are under the age of 36, you qualify for purchasing $14 tickets for most performances through the TSoundcheck program. Please, take advantage of this wonderful introduction to classical music. The TSO always gives you more. Classical music concerts tend to be 45... More

I enjoyed this concert and the conductor was excellent introducing each of the pieces. Although sitting in the stall I found the acoustics not that great. Singers were all however of very good quality.

We had the luck that they were giving a free concert in downtown Toronto. It was excellent and sounded beautyfull, so if you like this kind of music it will be worth to buy a ticket for there concert.

As soon as one chord was played, I was hooked. One of the best orchestras in North America, you wouldn't want to miss. The acoustics are incredible and you can always search for great priced seats.

I had the pleasure of seeing TSO Music Director Peter Oundjian in an interview a few weeks before attending a concert. He spoke with such passion for music and commitment to the TSO that was quite compelling. This made their performance even more enjoyable and gratifying. It’s been many years since I had last been at their concert, and I... More

For the 2013-14 season I attended some 7 concerts and all were wonderful. Usually, my wife would attend but on two occasions one of my daughters joined me instead. My wife is not a classical music person but after each performance she would leave the theatre with a smile, so I know she enjoyed it. The TSO must be one... More

I attended a recent concert by the orchestra at the Roy Thomson hall. A really enjoyable evening overall but definitely one of two halves for me personally. I bought my front balcony ticket on the day at $69 so clearly I must have misread the itinerary as I thought it was all Beethoven.. Fortified by a glass of Niagara chardonnay... More
