August 26, 2015

Mount Royal University will today officially open its new Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts, reportedly the largest musical teaching institution in Canada and the first major new performance hall in Calgary in three decades. The $90.5 M venue was funded through donations, government funding, reserves, and financing. The Taylor family gave $21 M, the largest donation in MRU’s history, along with $20 M each from Canada and Alberta plus $10.3 M from Calgary. The venue will house MRU’s Conservatory and the Bella Concert Hall, a state-of-the-art medium-sized hall seating 787 people. MRU | Fact Sheet
