Wow, what a spectacular venue! It's been a few years since I've been here and it's just as incredible as I remembered. This place is beautiful, inside and out! The acoustics are perfect, with clean sounds and no unwanted echoes.
The lobby and waiting areas outside the seating area is spacious and clean. I only wish the washrooms were easier to locate and access.
If you ever have a chance to visit Roy Thomson Hall for a show, just go!

Always an entertaining evening, the peak of musical performances.
The acoustics of the Orchestra was absolutely fantastic & featuring a Gentleman violinist during our visit. He offered the audience a personalized touch by playing "Waltzing Matilda" after his main performance of Beethoven. He played for a long time without sheet music...incredible memory. Truly a joy for my husband and I to witness.

A nice concert hall, a house for Toronto Symphony Orchestra. It is a nice hall hosting events of different genres, from classical to pop, jazz and rock.
Conveniently located in Toronto downtown entertainment district, a few steps from St. Andrew subway station.

Enjoyed two concerts and one natgeo speaker series here. Fantastic theater and the acoustics are perfect. The seating is pretty old and even the carpeting seems old. Restrooms are too few and there's a long lineup during intermission or after the shows. It can be modernized. The staff is very nice and polite. There are few places around the hall where you can buy drinks - alcoholic or non-alcoholic.
