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.

Been meaning to come here for a while, but the performers were not always my cup of tea. Eventually did get here, and was very impressed with the venue and the staff. You owe it to give this place a try.

Koerner Hall is a wonderful venue. Great acoustics, clear sights lines and comfortable seating; all in warm surroundings. An unique facility in that the hall is new and it is set between much older buildings, tied together nicely with bright, open glass atriums. Also very...More

Whether it's a JAZZ.FM91 concert, an Idea City lecture or a classical gig, I love Koerner Hall at the Royal Conservatory and I've enjoyed shows in other rooms as well. A marvel of architecture and a knowledgeable helpful staff. What's not to love?

I sit inside Koerner Hall, its attractive wooden framework seemingly woven in an intricate embrace from ceiling to floor, the resulting acoustics amplifying the tenor soloist’s rich opening lyrics, “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people”, and I wonder, can Christmas get any better than this...More

We attended a concert there as a family and thoroughy enjoyed ourselves. Wonderful renovations of an old building rather than ripping it down for a modern structure.

The Royal Conservatory of Music does not only educate and train fine musicians as a leading educator in the world, the Keorner Hall acoustic and varieties of programs made us Torontorians proud. I spent a lot of my time attending recitals by students who needed...More

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its

from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
