“World Class Facility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

This is a beautiful facility. I have visited numerous times and heard a variety of groups perform. The Windspear Centre is consistent in providing excellent acoustics. I have sat throughout the facility, and find the sight lines good, too.

World class facility which promises an amazing experience every time you go to enjoy the Arts. The ESO is particularily great as were the other artists we have listened to in the past.

“My favorite place in Edmonton!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

It is the most beautiful building in Edmonton! We've been several times, the ESO is amazing and everyone should try to go at least once! Tickets are usually reasonably priced for all concerts!

“Come for the Sound and stay for the entire experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

The purpose of a concert hall is to provide the best listening experience possible. The Winspear does this and much, much more! Home to the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (ESO), the acoustics are simply superb. As an ESO subscriber, I have been treated to the absolute delight of hearing every nuance, every note, played as I can only imagine the composer envisioned her/his music played. When joined by a choir, every voice can be picked out, even in the upper reaches of the hall. The ESO performances alone are worth an excellent rating. Add the world-class Davis Concert Organ and you are treated to an absolute audio treat. But it does not end there. Having attended many other diverse entertainment venues, convocations and other events at the Winspear, I can attest to the marvelous acoustics. A whisper on the stage is heard as a whisper and emotions are conveyed honestly and fully throughout the hall. Finally, the physical design and layout are, again, world-class.
