Went to the Symphony during Christmas with my mom and sister. We sat in the "cheap" seats at the very front right hand side. The sound was still excellent, you just could not see the whole orchestra but we knew this was going to be the case. I doubt that there is a bad seat in the house for sound and we paid $15 rather than the $80 of the people literally 4 feet from us in the middle.
Great performance.

We enjoyed another wonderful night of symphony music (ESO) from way up in the gallery last Friday. The sound and view from there is as wonderful as it is from just about anywhere else in this well designed and modern facility. Those attending the public events here come from all strata of Edmonton society and enjoy great service from the largely volunteer support staff. Wine, bottled water, coffee, tea, other hot beverages and some pastries are available at a number of snack bars on each level. Access and parking are great as this facility is a part of the Edmonton Pedway system and sits on the south east corner of the city hall fronted plaza/square

This place is fantastic! For a very reasonable price, you can enjoy a great evening of music. There is not a bad seat in the house and the sound is amazing! The staff are always friendly and helpful

The Winspear is a Fabulous venue for all types of concerts. We have seen everything from classical to pop. The accoustics are fabulous. The last concert was Natalie McMaster. She knows how to truly put on a show. Her fiddling is great. She has a great sense of humor which makes her performance very entertaining.

The Winspear is a beautiful concert hall, and is one of our favorite places in Edmonton. The ESO perform here, and are truly fabulous.
