Massey Hall The Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall presents programming ranging from emerging artists to the biggest names in the arts and entertainment — from classical and jazz to world music, rock and comedy. Presentations are held not only at Massey Hall and Roy Thomson hall but also at the 341 seat Glenn Gould Studio (CBC Broadcasting Centre) and other venues. Located in downtown Toronto, Roy Thomson Hall and Massey Hall are two of Canada's most renowned concert halls. Both halls are managed by the Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall, a not for profit charitable organization. Massey Hall was a gift from the Massey family to the city of Toronto in 1894. For over 115 years, its famous red doors have welcomed audiences to a stunning array of events, personalities and artists. It has earned a unique place in Canadian music history. Roy Thomson Hall, located in the heart of the King St. theatre district, opened in 1982. Its curvilinear exterior design and sloping glass canopy, which is reflective by day and transparent by night, have made this concert hall a Toronto landmark. Roy Thomson Hall is the home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, premier venue for the gala screenings of the Toronto International Film Festival and the venue of choice for corporate events throughout the year.
