June 14 is “Massey Hall Day” in Toronto in honour of its 125 birthday

Toronto Mayor John Tory has proclaimed June 14, 2019 “Massey Hall Day” in honour of the National Historic Site’s 125 birthday.

“This Massey Hall Day proclamation is a fantastic way to celebrate this iconic venue’s 125th birthday,” said Board Chair, Eileen Costello, The Corporation of Massey Hall & Roy Thomson Hall. “Massey Hall may be closed, but we have teams of skilled restoration & construction experts passionately working to restore and renew it so that it can continue to host another century of this country’s most iconic musical moments.”

While Massey Hall is closed, music fans and historians alike can still revel in the Hall’s history this week by visiting Nathan Phillips Square (100 Queen St. West, Toronto) for an immersive display in the City Hall lobby. This exhibit features exclusive photography by Toronto photographer Matt Barnes, archival video, architectural models and more. The installation is in place now through June 18.
