Roy Thomson Hall Toronto Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Great place to watch the orchestra. Seating has plenty of leg room even for really tall people like me. Sound is incredible and fills the auditorium. Staff are always helpful and there are plenty of bar areas and restrooms to avoid lines.

5 Star Rating Love all the orchestras! The orchestra is incredible and every single time, it amazes! We went to see the pines of Rome and it was my favorite of all time, the last part of it was incredible and the switch from light to dark and it growing back up was amazing. The writing is a great pair to understand the music and gives you something to think about while listening to the music, but the writing is very well written too! Everyone is super nice in the place, and the tickets were reasonably priced!

5 Star Rating We went there for the TSO orchestra and it blew our mind. The performance was grand and the coherence of the program was well done. The stage presence was impressive and conductor made sure to keep the audience engaged throughout the performance. We were throughly basking in the atmosphere as it was electric with the audience hanging on to every note and applauding enthusiastically after each piece. Bravo to the entire team of musicians and the conductor for an unforgettable experience. The hall was well maintained and the staffs very extremely friendly and helpful. The seats were perfect for viewing and the ticket prices were quite reasonable.
