The Strathmore is a beautiful concert hall. However, I had picked seats in the Grand Tier Boxes (Box 7 on the left side), which have an extremely low railing. There is a sheer drop from the box down to the orchestra section. If you have...More

I have been to Strathmore about 10 times and never had a bad seat. Sound quality and staging are excellent. A simple great place to catch a show or other entertainment.

It was a very nice music and event center. Plenty of great sound and acoustics, and the place was large and lively. Parking was okay, and the place was kept up nicely.

Strathmore attracts many good performers in a comfortable auditorium with good acoustics. The Dinning area is mediocre and very crowded in the winter when no outside seating is possible.

Have attended numerous events at Strathmore and all were delightful. Convenient parking close by, inside acoustics are very good, they offer a wide range of events, snacks/drinks are lovely, and in summer the outdoor concerts are fun.

The concert hall is exceptional, with very good acoustic and comfortable seats. The refreshment bar is decent, with several types of beer and wines, and snacks.

Great acoustics and line-of-sight, with easy in/out parking. Glad Strathmore is expanding on-site dining/food service. Just saw Canadian Brass holiday show, which imports Christmas spirit plus Dreidel Song. The Canadians should play Canadian Brass music while negotiating trade treaties.

I am not aware that that particular orchestra played at Strathmore. If you check the Strathmore partners there is no mention of it. That does not mean that at some point in time it did not occur, it just means that I am... More
