Every visitor and subscruber will feel after a concert that they had a valuable musical experience. The TSO has a loyal following but can use more younger followers. The web site is excellent but can be a trial when irdering last minute tickets.

The sound was very nice and clear. It is a very clean place and a pretty structured building. My ticket price was reasonable but obviously it was way behind in the back. It was still good though.

The TSO is a bit of a puzzle. They get good visiting performers and do a decent job but they just are not a crisp or solid as, say, Montreal. They are on a level with a good but second tier American orchestra - say...More

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.
