My wife and I have been to the Winspear many times and have never been disappointed by sound quality and the comfort of the seats. If you can find something you like or even something new, go, you will not be disappointed.

I have been to the Winspear Centre several times and enjoyed myself every time. I recently saw a concert with the ESO playing the music of Queen. It was awesome. There was not an empty seat in the house.

This was a delightful and truly uplifting event. The University of Alberta choral society make this presentation every year in early December. We also go there for concerts by the Edmonton Symphony.

The sound is amazing, great view from any seat. tickets are usually reasonably priced.Great variety of choices for performances throughout the year. An elevator to the second balcony would be very beneficial for people with mobility issues. Escalator was not working after performance.

Nothing on at Winspear. Don't despair the Fringe is on from 17 to 27 August. Go to old Strathcona and enjoy. Tickets for all the venues will be available on line.
