It was fantastic to see for many young people at a TSO concert, and this year's Twelve Days of Christmas was an ideal setting to expose youngsters to a symphonic experience. And what a way for the TSO to set the stage for the Christmas season, with Colin Mochrie narrating the Twelve Days of Christmas, complete with 11 pipers piping. Fascinating night of music.

The TSO was fantastic - we always like visiting the arts while traveling and this was no disappointment. Reasonably priced, but not at the expense of the performance. And there wasn't a bad seat in the venue. Excellent visit

Once again, I was delighted to attend a new TSO concert. Each time I go, it's always a special experience. This time, we had an encore interpretation of Cohen's Hallelujah on the piano played by Italian pianist Stefano Bollani. Simply beautiful and memorable. Thanks to all TSO musicians to bring such musical music. It warms the heart especially when it gets colder outside.

As a local and lover of classical music, I discovered the symphony later on after my stay in Toronto.

Long story short, this is the best symphony orchestra in town and definitely one of the better ones on the continent. If you're a classical music lover or like the symphony, you should not miss a chance at a show here.

This place is worth a subscription for classical music fans.

If you catch a show in Roy Thomson Hall, even better, since the building has VERY good acoustics, having spent lots of money to get it to that state. Also, the decor inside the building and inside the hall is very nice. They have good bars for intermission.

Be aware: Tickets to the shows, especially the big ones (Beethoven, Bach, etc.) sell out quickly, so if you want good seats to a performance (or any seats at all in some cases), definitely buy as early as possible.

Visited for TSO + Second City and the show was hilarious! Definitely planning to come back for this next year. I think TSO is doing a great job trying to appeal to a wider audience. If you are under 35, check out TSO soundcheck!
