By Michael Vincent on June 13, 2019

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

In honour of Massey Hall’s 125th anniversary, Toronto Mayor John Tory has officially proclaimed Friday, June 14, 2019, “Massey Hall Day”.

“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.”

Named a The National Historic Site in 1981, Massey Hall was closed on July 2018 for a $142-million renovation, designed by KPMB Architects. The historic venue will officially reopen in 2020.

Music fans and historians alike can visit Nathan Phillips Square (100 Queen St. West, Toronto) to check out an exhibit located in the City Hall lobby. The display includes historical photography, archival video, architectural models and more. The installation runs through June 18.
