The home stage of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Worth the 5 stars for that. Although the venue can and hosts a multitude of over events, they are best known for the TSO. The locale has an interesting architecture, arguably shaped like a massive, concrete and glass flan. It is artistic and yet a reminder of the simplistic Brutalist Movement , an architectural style which was all the rage during the 50-70's and today almost universally panned for its basic, usually geometric yet with almost no-frills cues. However the park around it and the quality of its acts keeps this building alive and a hub for any art lovers in Toronto.

Walked down here for their live concert series. The vibe is easy, band is cool but get her EARLY for seating. One glass of wine, a premium beer and a big bag of popcorn cost about $25 with a generous tip.

Catch the tso here. Frequent specially shows like comedy with second city or a complete set of movie soundtracks. Best acoustics you'll ever hear. Smells like bengay though.

Beautiful building, and the shows are top-notch. I have spent many hours here learning and listening to music. If you can catch a NatGeo Live event then seize the opportunity!

By far the venue with the best sound on the city. The architecture is interesting and the surrounding scenery is nice. It can be a bit costly but worth it.
