Excellent venue for concerts, great building design, seating, sound. Staff very polite and helpful. Washrooms very clean, as well as lobby. Parking difficult due to ongoing construction in downtown core.

As a season ticket holder of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, I recommend the Winspear for its accoustics, its elegance and its location.

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.
