Koerner Hall is very beautiful with excellent acoustics

I've seen a few concerts here and the acoustics are just remarkable. I highly recommend attending a concert here.

Beautiful symphonic concert hall with superb acoustics. This brand new hall is attached to a much older Victorian building :The Royal Conservatory of Music, where I and many others studied. There is handicapped access and a coffee shop in the corridors outside of the hall. A smaller intimate theatre: The Etoire Mazzolini auditorium which seats about 125 is in the... More

We have enjoyed many concerts at this wonderful newly created facility since it opened. It is ideally located in the city for us to walk to and fro.

Any chance you can, see a show here. The genre is not important- all music sounds so much better here whether it be modern contemporary or classical. We attended an evening featuring Canadian pianists playing contempoorary music, and every seat in the blond-wood sheathed hall offered an excellent vantage point. After the show, skip across the street to the Museum... More

I have been to the ballet here many times. Staff are helpful, drinks as expensive as you would expect at the ballet, seats are all good. Go on the morning of for cheap tickets. You can also go online to do this. Great deal!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
