This is an excellent concert hall situated in the centre, with very good acoustic, very close to the David Pecaut square.

This is the home of the TSO. Average venue with average music. The (smaller) TSO sounds much better in the smaller Toronto Centre for the Arts. P.S. Not enough washrooms.

As a longtime patron of the TSO, I can safely say that I have never had a poor experience in the beautiful hall. An absolutely stellar performance of Beethoven’s Ninth was complemented by the architecture and style.

The venue looks good from the outside but after you attend a few events you learn to hate it. Entrance and exit is jammed into a very small area. During the summer many patrons bail out through the fire exit only doors. Poor leg room...More

I would not say close you will have to exit go down the hall way and out to the main area. You will miss at least 5 to 10 mins of your show.
