A Toronto musical landmark named Massey Hall celebrated an anniversary today given its debut concert and opening to the public on June 14, 1894. Over the years, many musical performances and concerts have taken place in this popular venue. Some of those performances are reflected in Toronto Public Library’s music collection in Compact Disc (CD) format.
