The Venue

Koerner Hall is a 1,135 seat venue designed in the tradition of the classic "shoebox" venues of Europe, built without compromise and with a mission to provide acoustic perfection for music of all genres.

Classical, jazz, pop, opera, and world music are right at home in Koerner Hall. Its high ceiling and first-rate projection and communication technology make it perfect for films, lectures, and educational or corporate conferences. With its layered ribbon of wood forming a floating ceiling canopy, integrating an acoustic reflector, performance lighting, and technical bridges, Koerner Hall provides a dramatic yet intimate ambience between the audience and performers. The spectacular glass lobbies welcome guests to Koerner Hall and offer an extraordinary view of the city.”


The Royal Conservatory building is called the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning, located at 273 Bloor Street West.
