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 the brand new 1140 seat Koerner Hall (at The Royal Conservatory of Music).
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.

Located on the corner of Victoria & Shuter just off Yonge Street, Massey Hall is one of the oldest and most respected venues on the list—I mean, it's a National Historic Site for starters. The acoustics in the building are superb, making the Hall as diverse as it is famous. Whether you're hearing the heart-fluttering voice of Conor Oberst, the howling wickedness of Nick Cave, or the classical bow and cello of Yo-Yo Ma, this theatre can showcase and pull it all off gloriously.
If you need to maintain your buzz before the show or want to create one while you wait for the merchandise line to simmer down, Centuries Bar and Lounge is located in the basement. Fair warning though, bigger acts routinely pack Massey Hall and that means bigger prices on the ticket stubs. But what's the point of life if you aren't slashing your grocery bill in half in order to see some shows?
Tip: There's not a single bad seat in the house. Buy early if you want the closer rows on the floor, but if you're going to a gig here you're in for a treat no matter what.
