This venue hosts student graduations and many different types of concerts including Cirque Soleil and performances by various performers. The pipe organ is one of a kind and puts forth wonderful music.

The Winspear has amazing acoustics, the sound is full and rich. Not a bad best in the house. Staff are helpful. Easy access to several parades and LRT. Closet many great restaurants for dinner before the concert.

We enjoy the lighter and pop series with the symphony. Many other performances by a variety of entertainers have been enjoyed by us and many of our friends. The acoustics and sight lines are terrific.

A great idea from the Winspear -- Fat Frank's was outside to provide bratwurst and inside there were different beers available for purchase. The program was Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 played in its entirety, no intermmission. A fun evening and something different from the ESO!

This facility is primarily used for musical concerts, symphony, etc so there is a fee associated with each event. I recommend you go to their website if you'd like more information.
