Massey Hall, 1894, the ‘Old Lady of Shuter Street’

Massey Hall was built for about $150,000 in 1894.  It’s the oldest of five concert halls in TORONTO’s core.

The clock, above the distinctive red lobby doors, once hung in the Parliament of Upper Canada.  The walls of the basement bar are hung with programs and photographs of the countless “great ones” who have performed here – and still do, most nights of the week.  At one time, Massey Hall was home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Mendelssohn Choir.  Excellent accoustics, seats about 2700.
