The people that work there are very helpful and courteous. There is a small concession there where you can get ice-cream or snack foods. Coffee, tea, etc as well as alcoholic beverages.... More

The Winspear Centre in Edmonton is by no means a new facility now in 2016, but it remains a world class concert hall and venue.

I've been here for choral, symphonic as well as rock concerts. Lots of leg room in the seats and all great views. Concessions have a variety of goods and service is prompt. Washrooms clean and operating. Sound excellent!

The room has phenomenal sound. To listen to a performance at the Winspear is like wearing a set of high end Bose headphones. Crystal clear sound without relying on volume Highly recommend it as a venue

The Winspear Center is such a great place for any concert. The layout is excellent and sound is nothing short of spectacular. We were in the second row, but the sound wasn't too loud that it was uncomfortable. We were able to enjoy the concert, sight and sound.

I have had season tickets for the last 6 years to the pop series. The performances are very well prepared with singers/guests for major usa cities. Loved it.
