Awesome venue for concerts. I prefer the main orchestra level to the more expensive seats on the side. Parking at Canada Place is inexpensive and close.

The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra put on an excellent show highlighting memorable melodies of Operetta. The ESO, guest artists and choirs all performed magnificently and were given a well deserved standing ovation at the conclusion of the show.

Winspear is a amazing venue for small intimate plays but big enough to feel Broadway and top- notch.

Nothing on at Winspear. Don't despair the Fringe is on from 17 to 27 August. Go to old Strathcona and enjoy. Tickets for all the venues will be available on line.
