“The TSO is ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I do love the symphony and I met some of the musicians. The performance I attended was not mind blowing but it certainly was not a waste of time and money.

“Five Stars*****”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Toronto is lucky is have a full time symphony orchestra and really lucky to have such an exceptional one. The season music program is varied with content to appeal to everyone. I’ve been a subscriber to the “Pops” series for years and have enjoyed every wonderful performance. This year (2012-2013) Pops concert themes included Rogers & Hammerstein, James Bond and West Side Story. The TSO gets world famous guest performers and guest conductors. Concerts are held at The Roy Thomson Hall, a first class venue constructed especially for the symphony. Five Stars*****

“Sounded nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

It was a fairly good experience overall I don't why I went but there is a good pub next door. That food was gross but beer fixes everything.

“Must go to the symphony”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We enjoyed the symphony on a Saturday night. The hall was full, and people were dressed much more casual than expected.
