We are a globally significant centre for creative music.
We seek to address the question “what does experimental and creative activity look and sound like?” with our community and with our artists.
Established in 1976 by members of the Canadian Creative Music Collective (CCMC), the Music Gallery develops, presents and promotes contemporary music in all genres.
Since the beginning, our mandate to foster innovation and experimentation in music has remained constant, and today, we continue to redefine the possibilities for concert music.

In the beginning, there was music. Over its 40-year history, the Music Gallery has been many things to many people. When it was founded in 1976 by Peter Anson and Al Mattes, it quickly became a hub for collaboration, creative exploration and musical performance.
