Modern Concert Hall


Contrasting with yesterday's vintage church, directly across the street from it you will find Roy Thomson Hall. It was designed by Canadian architect Arthur Erickson and built in 1982. It is now the home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as well as the location for many other events and concerts during 'normal' times.

Amazing piece of architecture Pat, I bet the acoustics in there are pretty excellent ✨

What a great looking building. I wonder if all the glass is lit up on performance nights.

Great looking building. Oh yes, I remember when we could go to concerts. Perhaps we can again next year?

There's nothing else like it in Toronto... and maybe Ontario.

That one I've never been in.

At first glance it made me think of one of Queen Elizabeth's hats. We like to visit other city's concert halls when we travel but we've never been in this one. My wife, though, went to the opera many years ago when she was there for a conference.

This is a good looking building, but I wonder about the heating bills.
