Let's celebrate 130 years of unforgettable music moments at Massey Hall together! It's all thanks to music fans and supporters like you, whose dedication and enthusiasm fill our historic venue.

As we look towards the future, we have a lot to celebrate! We are particularly excited about the diverse range of community impact and education programs that now have a permanent home at Allied Music Centre. When you name a seat in the Allan Slaight Auditorium, you are directly contributing towards our ability to continue offering these vital programs free of charge. Just imagine the students, emerging artists, and community groups who'll reap the benefits.

Not only does your seat dedication honor Massey Hall's iconic legacy but you also play a key role in helping us shape an exciting future for generations to come. Join us on this journey by dedicating a seat today!
