“Great, intimate theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Cozy and wonderful sound. We saw Michael Kaeshammer there about a year or so ago. I wish there were more events to my liking at this venue.

“Great sound, intimate and uniquely Canadian!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

Glenn Gould studio is a great venue for a small intimate concert. I saw a fundraiser with three acts and was blown away by the quality of sound in the Studio. The lighting was also excellently executed. The concession drinks were reasonably priced and we were greeted by friendly service. The intimate and professional setting is enhanced by a distinct Canadian feeling. The wood paneled seats are reminiscent of the 1970's, Gould's heyday. A nice tribute is one of Gould's pianos that sits warmly in the hallway. I was presently surprised at the quality and overall experience at the Glenn Gould Studio.
