Never disappointed at the ESO. this performance was a combination of talents from the orchestra and a very talented vocalist lead by an extremely competent and knowledgable conductor. Overall an entertaining evening! We've been attending the Pops for several years and the only negative is that the themes are somewhat repetitive and while the music is fantastic the subjects are sometimes not familiar but somehow the expectation is that they should be. I guess that's the way we learn but hearing familiar tunes is more enjoyable for me.

Our daughters bought our family tickets to this event for Christmas. We range in age from 22-57 and all enjoyed it. Honestly, how can you go wrong listening to our amazing symphony at any time? The guest vocalists were very good. We had another great evening at the symphony.

This is a wonderful event at Hawrelak park. You need to be in the park at least one hour or earlier before the performance starts to find parking. There is park and ride at Windsor car park at U of A. Tickets sell out fast every year as this is one of the Symphonies most popular events. Food concessions are available within the pavilion. Lines do get busy for food so get there early.

The building looks modern, and fits well in modernistic/futuristic architectural picture of the Churchill square.
The acoustics is good in the hall, specially in front part (sound is somewhat bland, to my taste, at edges).

If driving, try to park few blocks away: exiting the main parking facility (underneath the square and the library) may take up to an hour after a concert.
