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.

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.
