This intimate performance hall brings musicians and audiences close together for acoustically superb concerts. The Alberta College Muttart Recital Hall (known by many simply as Muttart Hall) has been hailed, and thus, renowned for its sound engineering innovations. The unique and specific designs of the room were all predetermined to the exact detail in order to create a room that had limited seating, but made up for it with singular sound quality. Since its opening in 1993, the hall has become a favourite for both performers and spectators.
The fan-shaped hall was specifically designed with both the audience and musician in mind. Performers hear very little echo when playing on stage at Muttart Hall, and the audience is able to hear the notes with very little delay or reverberation. The net effect is a treat for both performer and spectator. The warm sound inside Muttart Hall makes it ideal for live performance recording. Music students from the adjacent Alberta College Conservatory of Music are lucky to have access to the venue regularly, and to hear how their instrument sounds inside a world-class venue.
The Muttart Recital Hall, originally named after Edmonton’s The Muttart Foundation, has everything a music lover needs. This hall not only stages great performances and facilitates learning experiences, but is also home to a well-known 9-foot concert grand piano, appropriately named as the Muttart Steinway. All this “sounds” grand - and pricey! - but the Muttart Recital Hall was actually created with a cost-effective mindset. But, no cost seems to have been spared when you’re there.
