National Music Centre Receives $1 Million Investment


I think I speak for most Calgarians when I say that I'm incredibly excited for the opening of the National Music Centre. And I speak for most gays when I say that I am praying that the National Music Centre includes the world's largest Celine Dion and Shania Twain collections. πŸ’ƒπŸ˜

The National Music Centre (NMC) today announced a $1 million investment from National Bank of Canada towards NMC’s campaign to construct its new facility Studio Bell.

The investment will be used towards naming a fifth-floor gallery inside Studio Bell. Level five is a floor dedicated to the theme of Celebrating Music and will honour Canadian musicians and industry leaders who have left their mark on Canada and beyond.

The gallery space, named the National Bank Private Banking 1859 Gallery, will showcase NMC’s national and international reach through partnerships with museums, cultural institutions, and private collections. Dedicated to temporary installations and travelling exhibitions, this gallery space will also feature items and objects from NMC’s own 2,000-piece collection, as well as visiting collections from around the world.

Are you guys getting excited for the opening of the NMC this summer? Which Canadian artists are you most looking forward to seeing exhibited?
