What a wonderful symphony orchestra! We went to see from Mozart to Rachmaninoff performance in February and were amazed by the true talent from the conductor to the orchestra. Definitely I recommend it to assist if you want to be impressed!

If you love classical music like I do you'd definitely enjoy performances in TSO. If you are under 35 check out tsoundcheck membership for the youth discounts. I was there recently to watch Messiah performance which was amazing.
