Roy Thomson Hall

Snappy Fridays – Roy Thomson Hall

I was walking from Metro Hall to work today and looked over at Roy Thomson Hall.  “Hmm…” I thought to myself. “I don’t recall getting a photo of this place from this angle before…”

Snappy Facts:

– Capacity: 2630

– Opened: 1982

– Home for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Mendelssohn Choir

– During its conception and construction, Roy Thomson Hall was known as New Massey Hall.  Its official name was acquired on January 14, after a CAD $4.5 M donation from the family of Roy Thomson.
