Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir has announced a $1M gift from the Hon. Henry N.R. Jackman to support its revitalization project at Trinity St. Paul’s. The gift brings fundraising efforts ahead of schedule, with $2.5M of $3M raised. ERA Architects is pleased to be working with the revitalization team to bring international standards to the quality of the venue and its acoustics.
Phase One renovations are well underway and scheduled to be completed in late September. They include a new permanent stage with side hall access; acoustic upgrades including wood battens and new hardwood floors; a new colour scheme for the entire sanctuary; and several other improvements.
Phase Two of the Revitalization Project will be undertaken in 2014 and 2015, and will focus on the further restoration and enhancement of spaces in Trinity-St. Paul’s. Plans involve increased accessibility and aesthetic improvements, including new lighting and multimedia equipment in the sanctuary.
In honour of Jeanne Lamon, Tafelmusik’s Director of more than three decades, the venue will henceforth be known as Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre, Jeanne Lamon Hall.
