I attended King Crimson's concert in the Jack Singer Concert Hall and was quite pleased by the venue. It presented sufficient acoustics in a top notch facility. The surrounding complex seemed to be teeming with other art related facilities and it seemed to fit in nicely. It was quite a busy night but I didn't have too much trouble navigating... More

We regularly attend plays at the Max Bell theatre, and recently attended the Chris Cornell concert at the Jack Singer Hall. Both venues are excellent, and provide a level of intimacy that is missing at other venues (such as the Saddledome and even the Jubilee Auditorium). As well, we also like the accessibility of the Arts Commons venues, in terms... More

Went here to see Brit Floyd Concert. Good Parking in underground Parkade, fantastic unobstructed views from all levels. Comfortable seats. Lobby gets frenetic during break so long lines for refreshments. Sound was incredible, lighting superb. Facility is such a credit to Calgary!

I recently went to the goodbye tour concert of the Buena Vista Social Club - and it was a blast. No matter where you sit in the concert room - you always have a great view and acoustics! I am looking forward to the next event I will hopefully attend soon in this great space!

I went here for a piano recital and it was a perfect venue for this type of performance. I'm going there for a concert soon too, but at Jack Singer Hall. In the Engineered Air theatre it was okay acoustics and a small stage with a small audience as well. But it was good because this type of event did... More

I have seen several shows at Epcor, always a comfortable venue, not too big or small. The seats are a little cramped but it's an older theatre. The sound is great.

This kind of place makes a First Class City. It really is unique. Its also wrapped up in a bunch of silliness caused by Epor, City of Calgary and whoever else wants to stick their nose in. Its sad that we can't host major entertainors because of city politics another example of poor business practices. I hope they can fix... More

We saw Rory Block at the "Engineered Theatre" at the EPCOR Centre. An excellent venue for the concert. Very intimate setting with this small theatre.
