I enjoyed the review of his book Super Genes and his ability to speak to the evolution of thoughts. I met a lovely individual also there on there own and... More

I'd seen photos of this unusual looking building, an upturned black pudding basin covered in netting is an accurate if rather unflattering description. It was near my hotel so I went to find it on Simcoe St at King by St Andrews Church. The building was open so I went to peek just inside. There was a mini tidal wave... More

In this incredible Hall, I have experienced profound emotions because of superior acoustics, and it doesn't matter where you sit. It is a beautifully designed venue in every way, and I always look forward with great anticipation to my next performance!

This is an exceptional venue for different programs. I have been here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The layout is easy to negotiate and the acoustics superb. The view of the stage is panaromic. A must see for music lovers.

We watched Tony Bennett set his Microphone down and walk to the front of the stage in a packed auditorium April 2015 and talk. You could have heard a pin drop. Then he sang, without a microphone. Wow.Thanks Roy Thomson Hall.

Abida Parveen This singer of sufi music gave a spell binding sold out performance at the well known Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto, produced jointly with the Aga Khan Museum. I've known Enya and Enigma to produce music that has healing effects. This world renowned singer does a little more for me. To quote the eloquent head of Performing Arts,... More

Went last night to hear Angela Hewitt playing the piano. She played 2 Bach Concertos and just blew us away - what a great performer ! After the interval we were treated to the full symphony with Shostakovich's Symphony No.8. A rarely performed piece which was complex and exhilarating. Just a great night at the RTH and well worth the... More

Accompanied my daughter's class on a school trip and was amazed at how wonderful it still looked after over 30 plus years. You would think it was brand new. The symphony sounded great and the acoustics are still wonderful.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
