EPCOR CENTRE's Jack Singer Concert Hall is described as one of the most beautiful and acoustically acclaimed venues in North America.
As the home of Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and EPCOR CENTRE's BD&P World Music Series, audiences are treated to some of the world's finest musical events. Through rentals to outside promoters and the community, the Jack Singer hosts a wide variety of performances year-round.
Special features incorporated into the hall design allow it to host a spectrum of entertainment, with a stage measuring up to 86' wide and nearly 38' deep. Suspended high above the stage is an 185,000-pound (90-ton) laminated sprucewood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix.
In August 2004, the Jack Singer Concert Hall was upgraded with a new million dollar sound system, including a state-of-the-art hearing assistance system. The main level of the concert hall is fully wheelchair accessible with flexible seating options.
