I was there for a taping of CBC Radio's Because News and it was a well organized event held in a theatre space perfectly suited to it. CBC staff were great as were the artists (Gavin Crawford and his guests the Baroness von Sketch cast).

Saw the show "Both" by two men who were double amputees at this theatre. What a lovely venue, the lobby is terrific, the seating is comfortable and the stage and sound are great.

We went to the studios not because of the studios but because of the Glenn Gould Statue outside. A bronze bench with the legendary piano player invites all his fans to take a seat next to him and get a photograph taken. To whom this seems childish is not a real fan. For me it was a bit like a must, something like a pilgrim tour to the monument of an artist I admire so much.
All his fans can just do it as they pass by on the way to the waterfront.

I attended a corporate event at the CBC's Glenn Gould Studio. The sound and lighting were first class and the seats were very comfortable. There were no bad sight lines. My only complaint is that the adjoining "lounge" was too small for the number of attendees.

Acoustics are great not worth a visit unless going to a concert. There is little to see other than a modern reforming wtudio

My husband and I went to see Roxanna " Exotica " We had a great time and a lot of fun. She's a very nice singer and the flamenco dancer were wonderful. It was a fabulous show.
To bad the concert was only one hour.

Wow! I have recorded and attended concerts here and am continually impressed by the intimate setting and acoustics contained within.
If you have a chance to attend a concert there or record, do not hesitate! What an amazing experience!

A Canadian legacy that we lost too soon. Glenn Gould Studio is a fabulous place to experience "music". If you have the opportunity to see/hear a show here, the acoustics are very good and lends itself well to musicians who play there and in turn to the audiences that are lucky to be present.

Cozy and wonderful sound. We saw Michael Kaeshammer there about a year or so ago. I wish there were more events to my liking at this venue.
