An aspirational home for our nation’s great artists and international iconic entertainers, no other venue has contributed so much to our country’s cultural identity. And now you can leave a lasting legacy by adding your name to the Hall.
When you name a seat in support of the Massey Hall Revitalization Project, your gift ensures Canada’s most preeminent cultural treasure thrives and fuels the joy and power of live performance that will keep going down in history. Your dedication will be engraved, leaving your mark on the Hall.
Seat Naming Opportunities

ABOUT THE Massey Hall Revitalization
We find ourselves in an incredibly rare moment, as Massey Hall nears the finish line of the most significant renovation in its 129-year history.
The expansion means four venues, including the remarkably restored Allan Slaight Auditorium and TD Music Hall, for artists, educators, and community groups with expanded programming. Beyond improved amenities and accessibility, students and communities will engage and connect through expanded Education and Outreach activity. Artists will be able to create and perform at every stage of their careers with tailored Artist Development support from the Halls. And music fans like you will be an integral part of an artist’s path to becoming headliners.
Much like the Hall’s founding wishes, a Gift for the People, we are excited to gather with friends and sing loudly together once again in the revitalized Massey Hall. Your seat dedication will bring the joy of live performances to audiences and artists alike – because everything sounds sweeter together.
If I make a donation to name a seat, will I receive a charitable tax receipt?
Yes, a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of your donation will be emailed to you upon receipt of your gift.
Will I be able to choose my seat?
Please select your desired seat level. A seat location within that level will be assigned by our staff following receipt of your donation.
Do I get to sit in my dedicated seat at any performance?
Naming a seat does not guarantee use of that seat at a performance.
I’m naming a seat in honour of a loved one. Will you notify them?
We would be happy to notify the honoree of your gift. Please contact Charlotte Perreault - Development Coordinator, to make arrangements (contact details below).
How long will my dedication be recognized on the seat?
Your seat dedication continues for a 25-year period.
How will my donation be recognized?
For gifts of $1,000+, donors will receive recognition on our webpage “Thank you to our Supporters,” in Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall annual reports, and on our Massey Hall donor wall. When making a donation online of $1000+, you will be asked for your preferred donor recognition name.
How big is the seat plaque and where will it be located on the seat?
Seat plaques are 3” (width) x 1” (height). For main floor, main floor parterre, and balcony seats the plaque will be affixed to the armrest. For gallery seats, the plaque will be affixed to the back of the seat.
