This wonderful multi-use performance space is named in honour of Margaret Brevik, whose generous bequest made the restoration of this room, and in particular, the acquisition of our lighting and AV systems, possible.
With its portable stage, professional theatrical curtains, sound, light, projection systems and fabulous Yamaha C7 Grand Piano, Brevik Hall is an intimate and beautiful performance space. Seating 150 theatre-style the hall has hosted some of Canada’s finest classical pianists (Anton Kuerti, Jane Coop, Jamie Parker to name a few), jazz, roots and indie performers (Paul Neufeld, Michael Occhipinti, The Good Lovelies, Sultans of String to name a few) and young emerging performers such as Stacy Kaniuk and the Aurora High School Senior Jazz Band. The 1884 sq foot hall can be divided into two smaller spaces by way of the original 1889 folding separation wall. Apart from our concerts, Brevik Hall has entertained corporate rentals, workshops, conferences, galas, heritage lectures, dances, music classes, family celebrations (birthday parties, commemorative services) and community fundraisers. When the Aurora Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market leaves its outdoor location for the winter months, the entire upper level of the Centre is transformed into a vibrant community market once a month.
