Music Gallery programming is developed in several ways, with varying timelines. A majority of programming is decided by the spring for the following season. Generally, we are not able to support touring requests from artists outside of Toronto that provide limited notice. We are happy to receive and respond to your inquiry, and provide recommendations if we cannot book you.

One of the most effective ways to connect with our programming team, and share insights into your practice, is by submitting your information through our public calls–in recent years these included our You in Mind series, and residency programming. Numerous artistic relationships are fostered through these processes, and we invite you to submit when a call is made public.

Visit the information page on the 918 Bathurst website to learn about the venue, and submit your rental request. The Music Gallery works in partnership with 918 Bathurst and may be able to support event production.

We select co-presentations from concert ideas, individuals and organizations that are aligned with the Music Gallery’s mission of presenting creative music and our organizational values. If we cannot collaborate on your event, we’re happy to connect you with 918’s management team.

We strive to create a safe, welcoming environment for all artists and patrons. All artists and patrons must respect our code of conduct. We will provide accommodation such as earplugs, content warnings and a “quiet room” away from the main hall, and provide assistance to patrons and artists with mobility issues as best as possible

We present concerts, workshops, panel discussions and other events from September through June, with occasional summertime programming. The season features two festivals, X Avant and What Is, and an off-site series (Departures).

We are located at 918 Bathurst St., two blocks north of Bloor St. West and a five minute walk from Bathurst subway station on Line 2.

Our primary venue, 918 Bathurst, is not fully accessible due to stairs (two steps to the main entrance, a half-flight to enter the performance space, and a half-flight to access the washrooms and the Music Gallery office).

We offer livestreaming of select core concerts here on our website for those who are unable to attend in person.

You are welcome to contact matthew@musicgallery.org with your questions regarding accessibility.

When a livestream is in progress, the link will be accessible from our home page and from the event page on our website. You can also access our livestreams through twitch.tv through the @musicgalleryto account.

There is a link to purchase tickets on each event page. Our ticketing page, with all events currently on sale, is accessible from our home page, or can be found here. You can also purchase memberships by following the ticketing link.

We encourage patrons to be masked as much as possible for community safety. Our COVID policy provides further details, and will be updated in response to any public health measures.

We may adopt event-specific policies in response to requests from featured artists and partner organizations. Please review individual event pages for this information.
