“Excellent acousitcs, very good music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

For a quality show, the music is well-demonstrated at the Winspear. The parking is accessible, and underground spots are usually plenty for most performances

“Winspear Centre is a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Edmonton's Francis Winspear Centre is a treat for fans of all music genres. Every seat is a great seat and the accoustics are fantastic! No matter if it's a Dean Brody country hootenany, a Laugh for Life fund raiser, or an Edmonton Symphony Orchestra performance you are going to be so glad you attended. Watch for their free concerts, too.

“World class venue!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

The Winspear is superb! I have been at La Scala in Milan and the acoustic in the Winspear is better and so are the seats. The organ is magnificent and during an orchestral performance, if your sit in the "chorus" you can actually read the music the musicians are playing. If you are a music lover treat yourself to this concert hall.
