THE NON-PROFIT MUSIC GALLERY, 41-YEARS-OLD, MOVES INTO NEW PREMISES @ 918 BATHURST ST.

Founded in 1976 by Peter Anson and Al Mattes of the free-improvising group CCMC, TORONTO’s unique Music Gallery has a new address. Partnering with the Bathurst Centre for Culture & the Arts, 918 Bathurst Street in the Annex, the new venue offers greater capacity and more modern facilities.

Over several decades, the Gallery has promoted the development and performance of music of all genres. Its home since 2001 has been St-George-the-Martyr Church at the southern end of Grange Park.

THE MUSIC GALLERY will keep an office at the church, but make 918 Bathurst its indefinite home base for programming.
