True, Walter Hall has been around since the early 1960's, but it is primarily a university ·facility, used for literally hundreds of student and faculty recitals each year. Then there was the Eaton Auditorium, but tucked away on the seventh floor of Eatons College Street, it hardly counted either. In the early 1980s Roy Thomson Hall was built, but with its indifferent acoustics it. didn't. have nearly the impact it might have. More recently both the Glenn Gould Studio and the George Weston Recital Hall have come along--comfortable . and serviceable performance spaces with acoustics for which no apologies were necessary. Now with the Mississa uga Living Arts Centre about to open its doors we seem to be turning a corner, from famine to feast! What a space! --two main performing spaces, a 1300 seat concert hall with what seems to be a superb acoustics, and a multi-purpose theatre space reminiscent of the du Maurier Theatre Centre at Harbourfront. The larger space, Hammerson Hall, will be ideal for orchestral concerts, opera and musical theatre. Let the music spread! Bravo Mississauga.
