The Bella Concert Hall at Mount Royal University’s Taylor Center for the Performing Arts is named for Taylor family matriarch Mary Belle Taylor, known simply as Bella to all who knew and loved her. Designed by Pfeiffer Partners, the concert hall’s interior pays homage to Alberta’s rural heritage with structural elements reminiscent of the weathered barns dotting the landscape; the ceiling design is inspired by a prairie rose. The acoustics are state-of-the-art as the room is tuned specifically for each performance. The hall holds more than 600 people, and is wheelchair accessible.
Bella Concert Hall at Mount Royal University can be accessed from Glenmore Trail or Crowchild Trail, just follow the signs. Parking is available nearby at the East Gate Parkade and Lot 2. Paystations accept Cash, Visa, or Mastercard transactions.
