“There are no bad seats here.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I just saw the Tenors there, and hadn't been in years. The place has held up well, and no matter where you sit, the view and audio is great. Bar is reasonable, and you can take your drinks in with you, and there are enough seats that everyone seemed to be able to sit at intermissions that needed to.

“Best Classical music in town”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Classy place to enjoy classy music. Likely my favourite venue in TO. I love the round building too. TSO plays here.

“Seats designed for comfort, Acoustics designed to delight”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Over the years, RTH seems to have gotten better.... perhaps acoustical engineers have tweaked things to make the sound even better. The performances and events vary nicely; whatever I've gone to hear there, whether René Fleming, the Toronto Childrens' Chorus, the Toronto Symphony, The Proms or guest artists, I've always been glad I went. Worthwhile concert venue to visit or frequent.

“Angelic Voice in Great Hall!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We went on Thursday, March 14th for Jackie Evancho's only Toronto performance.
She still sings like an angel, although she has grow a few inches, and her face has changed. Well, she will be 13 soon, and puberty has its effects. Hopefully she will keep her strong, clear voice when she is on the other side of puberty.
The hall is fairly large with good acoustics and comfortable seating. Each row of seats is raised two steps giving spectators an unobstructed view.
