Jack Singer Concert Hall

The EPCOR CENTRE's Jack Singer concert Hall is described as one of the most beautiful and acoustically acclaimed venues in North America. Designed by Artec Consultants, the concert hall is a synthesis of some of the world’s finest concert halls. Its ambience and acoustics are designed to offer a total live concert experience. It is modeled in an intimate rectangular form which is said to produce the best quality sound, and the concert stage is geared to host a wide variety of entertainment. It is also home of the impressive Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix.

Special features incorporated into the hall design allow it to host a spectrum of entertainment, with a stage measuring up to 86' wide and 37'11" 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.

In August 2004 the Jack Singer Concert Hall was upgraded with a new million dollar sound system, that includes a state-of-the-art hearing assistance system.

The Jack Singer Concert Hall is named for Mr. Jack Singer, whose sons Alan and Stephen honoured with a significant contribution in recognition of Mr. Singer’s commitment to the arts in Calgary.
