Massey Hall is a beautiful, historic 2752 seat concert hall in the heart of Toronto that is also a designated heritage building under the Ontario Heritage Act. The Hall was home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as well as the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir prior to the opening of the Roy Thomson Hall in 1982.

Massey Hall was built in 1894 for a cost of just over $150,000. At that time it seated up to 3500 guests, however renovations during the 1940s reduced the capacity to the current 2752. The hall has had many famous dignitaries pass through its doors over the years and it has hosted performances by many famous artists.

Massey Hall continues to be a popular venue for many concerts and shows. For additional information about Massey Hall and upcoming concerts and events see the official website link above.

4 Star Rating Concerts here are amazing and the sound quality is perfect! This place is not handicap friendly because it is a historic building but I believe it could be done if needed. The only problem is the chairs are not very comfortable since they are original but it beats standing.

4 Star Rating Historical venue with great sound! Only advice: Careful when you choose your seats that you aren't behind a pillar (could damper the experience).

4 Star Rating Great venue! Went for the first time the other day and the show was great. Seats are a bit uncomfortable, but I heard they are renovating it. Hopefully they update those seats! Love the classic feel of the place. And all the staff are great. Very kind and informative. Can't wait to catch another show there!
