Make sure you pay them a visit when you´re in town! They´re a really good orchestra in a hall that has been vastly improved over the recent years!

“A good, if variable orchestra”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

The Toronto Symphony has come a long way over the years. On their best nights, they can sound truly world-class. On other nights, not so much, although they are never less than professional. Look for appearances by well-known touring maestros for their best work.
