Massie Hall Returns - Outdoors
No doubt we’ve all been eager to see a return of concerts and other gatherings to Massie Hall. Last year we had only one concert at the outdoor stage briefly known as MOPAC (Massie Outdoor Performing Arts Centre) – where the incomparable Victoria Yeh with her smokin’ violin and the ever-popular Drew McIvor performed to an appreciative audience. We had the largest turnout ever for a Massie Hall concert – 83 people.
The continuing uncertainty around the pandemic situation has us feeling a bit tentative, but that’s not going to stop us! The Massie Hall board has appointed Massie’s own Pete Miller as Artistic Director and we’ve decided to go ahead with 5 outdoor concerts in 2022.
Pete has lined up some awesome gigs to get our feet tapping and our hearts singing. The kick-off concert in June, called Come Together, will be a tribute to The Beatles by Pete’s own band, The Millpond Project, and The Little Bigheads. Scroll down to see our 2022 lineup.
Massie Hall is the community centre fashioned out of an old stone building - formerly a one-room schoolhouse erected in 1871 - in the picturesque hamlet of Massie, near Chatsworth, Ontario. The hall hosts great Live at Massie Hall concerts showcasing top quality musicians. We also bring in the crowds for our popular fish fry and ever-growing car show and chrysanthemum sale. The hall is available for rental for private parties, workshops and other events. It acts as a community hub.
Our community may be small but we make up for it with charm and spunk. It sure helps that we're surrounded by glorious nature, including the Bighead River which tumbles and roars through our tiny community. We invite you to check our calendar and see which events you'd like to attend in this beautifully restored venue. Or make it the perfect place for your next gathering of family and friends, be it a wedding, christening, birthday or retirement party or any other reason you can think of to celebrate!
