My husband and I enjoy seeing other city symphonies whenever we travel. We are used to a large symphony in our home town. TSO is a small symphony, but gives off a great sound. We enjoyed seeing them. If we're ever back in Toronto we...More
We love visiting different symphonies around the world when we travel so looked forward to Toronto’s symphony. We were not disappointed! It was so easy to get to by the subway and the underground walkway. There were lots of restaurants just a block away for...More
The TSO has maintained a strong level of performance in recent years as it experiences changes in its conductor. It can produce a fierce sound when it lets loose on prominent Romantic pieces despite a somewhat smaller size than would be appropriate; it is also...More
Atop the classical music pinacle in Toronto, indeed Canada, is the TSO. It has been a long, slow climb, but the orchestra has finally come into its own. Under Maestro Andrew Davis, the TSO built a solid core of players. In the past 13 years...More
We find the sound at Roy Thompson to be poor compared to other venues in the city. Could be due to to many musicians a little out of step?
The TSO sounds better with fewer players in a smaller venue like Koerner or George Weston.
What good fortune we had to attend a concert of the TSO at the George Weston Concert Hall in Toronto. The venue is intimate although we prefer the acoustics at Roy Thomson Hall where concerts are usually held.
Sir Andrew Davis was conducting. The concert...More
While visiting Toronto, seeing the TSO was high the list. My friend who now resides in Toronto, was my VSO buddy for the last few years. The Roy Thomson Hall is beautiful and the acoustics are superior to VSO’s location. Last night we were delighted...More
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
