Do you love music, architecture, and Toronto history? This event is for you! Join us for a backstage visit to the newly re-opened Massey Hall – fresh from its massive 3-year renovation and revitalisation.
Harvard Club of Toronto members have an extraordinary opportunity to tour the beautiful, hallowed hall of Canadian music from the inside out. Massey Hall is a national historic monument and an aspirational home for great Canadian and international musicians and entertainers. Industrialist Hart Massey commissioned the hall in 1894, as a gift to the city of Toronto.
For the last three years it has been restored and updated by Chief Architect Marianne McKenna, and the KPMB Architects team. Reimagining this legendary venue, the Massey Hall Revitalization includes a seven-storey addition to the original historic Hall to accommodate programs for artists, communities, and audiences. The Allied Music Centre is designed for music creation, education, and excellence, with performance venues and spaces for artists and community events.
