4 Star Rating Was here for a concert, liked the venue!

3 Star Rating I've been to the Roy Thomson Hall on many occasions and I do like it. I just have problems with it's age and I think I've seen better halls that are more newer. However, the old age and historical value definitely makes this place beautiful. Also, it is able to hold so many visitors. I just think the architecture of the building is not as pretty as the new Canadian Opera House.

5 Star Rating Handel's Messiah was exquisite this year. Always appreciate it. This year it glowed! Love the venue and the event. Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Mendelssohn Choir are world class.
