In early February, Small World proudly opened the doors to the Small World Music Centre, at Toronto Artscape’s Youngplace. The SWMC, located on Shaw Street near Queen West, is a new community hub for global music and the people who play it and enjoy it. A high-quality listening room with flexible seating for 80, it is an ideal venue for intimate performances, educational workshops and community events.
A full lighting system illuminates the beautiful 12X18 hardwood stage, while wrap around draping helps create the perfect acoustic environment for both amplified and acoustic presentations. A key feature of the new facility is the 'Virtual Concert Hall' – a suite of high-quality video and audio capture technology, enabling what takes place in the Centre to be experienced beyond its four walls. Performances, workshops, lectures and more can be fully documented and edited into finished video content.
The Small World Music Centre is available for community use and event rentals. From performances and workshops, recordings and rehearsals, to presentations and screenings, the Centre is at the service of our diverse partners, from performers to community groups as well as our new neighbourhood. Contact our office for details on pricing, availability and full venue specifications.
