In the heart of downtown Toronto, Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall are two of Canada’s premier and most renowned concert halls. Both halls are managed by The Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall, a not for profit charitable organization.
For over 120 years, the famous red doors of Massey Hall have welcomed audiences to a stunning array of concerts, events, personalities and artists, earning Massey Hall a unique place in Canadian music history. Built by industrial baron Hart Massey and donated by the Massey family to the city of Toronto in 1894, the Hall soon became famous as Canada’s most important venue for concerts and lectures, attracting such luminaries as Enrico Caruso, Eleanor Roosevelt, George Gershwin, Glenn Gould, Oscar Peterson, Maria Callas and Luciano Pavoritti. Today, the Halls’ original Moorish-style architecture still stands, along with the 1933 Art Deco-inspired renovation, providing an eclectic space to see your favourite rock and pop stars on the historic stage.
Roy Thomson Hall, another Toronto gem and landmark, opened in 1982 in the heart of King St. and the theatre district. Designed by acclaimed architect Arthur Erickson, the curvilinear exterior and sloping glass canopy is reflective by day and transparent by night. Home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and premier venue for the Toronto International Film Festival gala screenings, the stage has also played host to thousands of world-renowned artists, orchestras, speakers and luminaries, galas, festivals and landmark anniversaries. Roy Thomson Hall’s transformative abilities, prime location, amenities and accessibility also make it the venue of choice for corporate events throughout the year, giving you the perfect blend of work and play.
