Concert Hall Profile
Two people standing on the empty Francis Winspear Centre for Music stage can talk in normal voices, and someone else sitting in the farthest distant seat can hear their conversation.
The concert hall's flawless acoustics have won rave reviews from musicians, music fans, and appreciative audiences. The 1,932 seat main concert hall has hosted Edmonton Symphony Orchestra concerts, Jazz City concerts, choral revues, and opera. Construction on the centre, at the corner of 102 Avenue and 99 street began in 1995, and by summer, 1997, all the final touches on the $40 million complex were complete.
The Winspear Centre opened in September 1997 with a nine-day celebration of the centre's potential. Performers like Michael Burgess, Jann Arden, Herbie Hancock, The Chieftains and cellist Shauna Rolston helped highlight the performance hall's diverse uses. The main hall utilizes a wraparound design that creates an intimate relationship between performer and audience.
The Winspear's rehearsal hall has been used by touring groups, including the Rolling Stones, and the meeting and reception rooms are well utilized by corporate and community groups for various functions. The front lobby, with its high glass windows, is also used for wedding receptions, media launches and other functions.
