A $5 million renovation in 1996 transformed the 730-seat hall in the performing heart of CCM into an elegant concert hall. This auditorium is fully equipped with complete stage and lighting facilities for the presentation of choral, orchestral and wind concerts, ballet, opera, musical theatre and recitals. Fiber connectivity to CCM audio and video recording studios allows all performances to be recorded. The auditorium contains a 3-manual Harrison and Harrison (English) organ of 60 ranks. The auditorium facilities also include guest and chorus dressing rooms and adjacent warm-up rooms.
