“The best acoustics!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I heard Brandi Carlile here with the ESO. It was outstanding! The music was fantastic, and the hall definitely added to the experience. The acoustics were so great that Brandi sang several songs acapello. It was amazing! I really recommend catching a concert here on a visit to Edmonton. Beverages and coat check are available. Easy to get to on the LRT- the station is right at the Winspear, so you don't have to worry about parking. Well worth a visit.

Suzuki School has their Spring concert at this fabulous venue every year. The sound is incredible in this beautiful building and I always enjoy the music performed by the talented students.

“A Feast for the Ears and Eyes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

If you have never been to the Winspear, I suggest you treat yourself to the most beautiful acoustics ever heard in this city. The way they light a performance is also a feast for the eyes, everything is gorgeous about the Winspear. Easy to get to as well, take the LRT or park at the Library. Don't miss out on seeing and hearing this beautiful building come to life!

“Excellent Musical Facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Winspear Centre is definitely the best venue for concerts! Musically, the whole place is designed for the ultimate sound experience. Can't get anything better for a music event -- have attended a number of concerts there and never hesitate to attend something held at the Winspear!
