An intimate atmosphere

Lets the audience connect with the music and the musicians connect with the audience.

Available for events & rentals

In February 2014, Small World opened the doors to the Small World Music Centre at Toronto Artscape’s Youngplace facility. 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 70 – 100 standing, it is an ideal venue for intimate performances, workshops and community events. A full lighting system illuminates the beautiful 12X18 hardwood stage, while wrap around draping helps create the perfect setting for both amplified and acoustic presentations.

The Centre’s ‘Virtual Concert Hall’ – a suite of high-quality video and audio capture technology – means that what takes place there can be experienced digitally 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 – please see our list of equipment specifications below and contact our Venue Manager for a quote: jeff@smallworldmusic.com
