 Randolph College To Launch...Are You Ready? The Bill King Centre

By FYI Staff

The Randolph College for the Performing Arts (RCPA) will inaugurate its second location for post-secondary education this spring and it will be named in honour of legendary pianist, composer and music scribe Bill King.


The Bill King Centre will be located within the Daniels Corp. Artworks Condominium in the heart of Toronto’s Regent Park district.

The Regent Park district is an “important cultural destination as well as an ‘arts district' from which the next generation of great artists and performers will emerge, said Mitchell Cohen, President and CEO of The Daniels Corporation, which is to house the new 10,000 square foot cultural centre that will host studios, an event space, lounge and library.
