What more could be said about Massey Hall? It is beloved by all and has a renowned international reputation. Anyone who is anyone has played Massey Hall, and its acoustics are apparently superb.Massey Hall opened in June 1894 with a total of 3,500 seats; over the years this has been reduced to its current number of 2,753.
Massey Hall was open to the public for the Doors Open Toronto weekend this year, so I used this opportunity to photograph the Hall in its original state prior to its upcoming major alterations. On July 1st Gordon Lightfoot is scheduled for the last performance prior to the revitalization. The Hall will be closed for a few years for a complete restoration and revitalization of this National Historic Site.
