“More than just for amazing music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The sound at the winspear is amazing - it is so clear and a perfect pitch - just incredible sound not to be missed weather one musician singing their heart out or a full orchestra. The organization of the seating makes it feel like a smaller venue that it actually is that adds to the experience. This is also a great venue for a business meeting/session during the day or evening reception. The catering is great and staff are exceptionally helpful.

“Love the Acoustics with the Symphony”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love date nights with my hubby at the Symphony. The Acoustics in the Winspear are fantastic. They make the music feel magical. A very intimate feel. Always a treat to have the opportunity to enjoy a show in this facility.

“A Wonderful Concert Hall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

The Winspear is a smaller, very intimate concert hall with superb accoustics. While this can be unforgiving for musicians and singers, it is an audio treat for the audience. Every seat provides an excellent view of the stage.
