Owner description: The Edmonton Symphony regards as its artistic mission to bring the highest quality of live orchestral performance to a broad spectrum of the community. In the last 60-plus years, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra has taken its place as one of Canada's foremost orchestral ensembles. Its current roster includes 56 musicians from Canada and around the world, performing a wide-ranging repertoire from the great classical masterworks to pops and family concerts. The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra made its Carnegie Hall debut as part of the Spring for Music festival on May 8th, 2012.

The ESO plays in the Winspear Centre, one of North America's premier concert halls. The main conductor, William Eddins, has built a huge following with his enthusiasm, talent and fireside chats with the audience. The program is broad, with something for everyone, and guest artists and conductors are drawn from the broader global community of musicians and performers. A very special evening for those who love music.

I always go to a great many performances (most of the seasons) of the ESO. They are consistent and talented, however the performers always look morose and don't seem to be that fond of their charismatic conductor William Eddins, who is always the best part of the evening due to his humour and enthusiasm. Current concertmaster Uchida is extraordinary. But because of the attitude of the players I'm always left feeling a little depressed...

This is a very good group of players, who are currently under the direction of Bill Eddins, His tenure is drawing to a close and so a new conductor will be chosen soon. ESO has a great reputation and definitely gets the job done!

We really enjoy the performances we attend. There is lots of variety and we have always found it uplifting! In the past our children have always enjoyed the Symphony for Kids performances and now our grandchildren are enjoying them.
