Plans are to open its doors again in November, 2021. In July, 2021 the venerable concert hall already celebrated its 127th birthday. Originally constructed to seat 3,500 patrons, and built then for about $150,000 in 1894, it’s now finishing up a multi-million dollar renovation. The brand new attached Allied Music Centre will feature state-of-the-art performance venues and spaces for artist development, education and outreach initiatives. These will make use of the 7-storey tower (attached behind) Toronto’s oldest concert hall and National Historic Site. Financed by the federal and provincial governments as well as the city, this project will no doubt be over the top. Renovating the old building and constructing the new one, along with modern loading docks, new artist dressing rooms and improved technical facilities for large touring productions, it will be one busy place at 92 Shuter Street.
