I have seen a number of different performers in the Winspear, and they all feel the same way as their audience: "This place has fabulous acoustics" I have sat from the back of the second balcony all the way to the front row, and it did not matter, everything sounded wonderful. A special treat is when Brandi Carlile comes to... More

This has to be one the best venues in Edmonton to go and see a concert or other type of live performance. The interior of the building is stunning and the acoustics are fantastic. The other main attraction to the center is the gigantic pipe organ on the stage.

We have been to the Winspear Centre on many occasions and have sat in all seating areas and NOT a bad view anywhere! The sound is unequalled anywhere you sit in the Centre in listening to the symphony or pop music it is well worth the experience. The theatre in the round is also worth the experience. Our family tradition... More

I've seen the ESO perform the classics, attended a master organ recital, was in awe at Rufus Wainwright, Chantal Kreviazuk and completely mind blown by La Bottine Souriante. Edmonton's Winspear Centre must simply be experienced. Period.

I have season tickets for the Edmonton symphony & it is a joy to attend. There is not a bad seat in the house, musician's from across the globe come to perform with the ESO, giving us an incredible night. Have also seen all performers there, ecoustics are perfect.

Well located near hotels and restaurants with ample parking close by. Absolutely first rate place to hear musical presentations. If there is a show when you are in town it is well worth going.

The concert hall at the Winspear Centre in Edmonton is, in my opinion, one of the best in the world. Acoustically it is a jewel - you can hear perfectly in any seat, and the Lewis organ send chills down my spine - it is amazing! Also the Edmonton symphony Orchestra under Bill Eddins is very good. My wife and... More
