The federal government is pitching in $18.1 million towards the completion of the Francis Winspear Centre for Music.


The $65-million expansion to the downtown music venue, which is home to the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, will transform a surface parking lot into 3,809-square metres of mixed-use new cultural space, including a 550-seat mid-size acoustic hall with automated raked seating to allow for multiple room configurations, and areas that allow for more cultural and artistic programming, performances, meetings and conferences.

The project will receive $13 million in funding from the province and $13 million from the city and aims to raise $17 million through a public fundraising campaign beginning in January.

With shovels in the ground by January 2020, the expansion is slated to be finished in the fall of 2022 — the 25th anniversary of the Winspear Centre.
