Our kids graduated from the youth series to the light classic series and they enjoyed it. The guest conductor Matthew Hall turned rather serious classical music to something youth could enjoy. The program was well done.

This has become part of our Christmas holiday tradition....the TSO and the Messiah. Always very moving and, combined with the choir, uplifting. This is a real treasure.

I would recommend this orchestra to anyone who wants to be carried away for 2 hours. The different movements and change in composers makes sure that anyone is delighted with the programme. It doesn't matter where you sit, you will be able to hear perfectly!...More

It is by far one of my favourite orchestras! Would fully recommend going with friends, partners, or parents. Put this on your calendar whenever you can get the opportunity to go.

The most recent experience was with the TSO's performance of Beethoven 9. It was grandiose and fabulous! Their concerts are very affordable and definitely worth the price! They seem to have a very good programme this year, so would definitely recommend to music fans!

The TSO's performance of Handel's 'Messiah" is a Christmas tradition for me. 2014's performance is MAGNIFICENT. An inspired orchestra and inspiring choir are fronted by four wonderfully talented young Canadian voices. Philippe Sly's bass-baritone sonorous solos were the best I have ever heard performed in...More
