We have attended numerous performances including the Robins Pops series, Barenaked Lades, Glenn Miller Orchestra, Tony Bennett and more. The sound quality and acoustics are amazing! Tony Bennett commented that the Winspear was in the top 2 venues that he has ever performed at for sound quality.

We have season tickets this year and are loving the performances called the Robins Pops. A wonderful way to spend a evening with good music. The sound in the Winspear Centre is the best you're are ever going to hear.

Any kind of music, dance, special event that takes place here is extra special because of the Winspear itself. The building has a warm vibe and is beautifully designed; it is easy to navigate, convenient to attend, has with perfect acoustics.
