We attended an event at the Francis Winspear Centre in May 2015. Apologies for the late review; new to Trip Advisor. We were concerned upon arrival on Day 1 that we were running too late to get a good seat in the general admission group; however, there was not a bad seat in the house. The seats were comfortable, albeit... More

The Winspear has a great deal of accessible underground and above ground parking in the area. The theatre has a attractive, comfortable, and unpretentious main lobby. Each main seating section has its own smaller lobby for intermissions where drinks can be purchased. The seating does not have the leg room one would expect but the seats are comfortable. We say...

Excellent venue for concerts. Went with a group of young ones to listen to the Edmonton symphony. Better than the Jubilee Auditorium for acoustics.

This is by far the best musical venue in Edmonton. From the classics to rock and roll the various acts benefit from this stunning venue. They do a great job of providing many types of musical entertainment.

Once again, an amazing concert at the Winspear. The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, along with the Kokopelli choir, (94 voices!). It is always a pleasure to attend a concert here, at this world class concert hall. Whether I'm attending an ESO concert, or a rock n roll show, the sound is always first class, and I don't think there's a bad... More

An intimate setting for events as compared to stadium venues. The acoustics are superb. Just don't cheer too loudly because you will scare the performers, the sound is so sharp....hahaha. Every seat offers a great view. Don't miss the chance to hear top Canadian acts in this theatre.

An outstanding venue for musical performances, frankly, an acoustical showcase for the world class Edmonton. Symphony Orchestra as well as voices. The acoustics are stunning and frankly it's impossible to have a bad seat. I've attended a variety of different performances choral, orchestral, jazz, pops as well as solo artists. The sound is always intimate even without electronic amplification. The... More
