We recently attended "Messiah" at the Toronto Symphony. The choir alone was 125 people and another 30 violins and other instruments and 4 soloists. A superb world class performance!
The production was excellent and the conductor put so much feeling and life into it, that it became an emotional experience.
The acoustics are so good, it feels like you will hear a penny drop on the stage and it carries every note, pure and clear to you.
TSO is something we all should visit from time to time. It is a soul cleansing and uplifting experience!

We were so fortunate to attend a recent performance of the TSO with Mr Perlman at Massey Hall . He is such a wonderful example of truimph over polio adversity and his music is so beautiful. When he returns make a point of getting tickets the venue is spectacular and easy to get to , as well..

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.
