The Canadian Music Centre’s Vancouver Creative Hub is available for rentals, including the Murray Adaskin Salon — a 44-seat, urban, black-box performance space — and the 14-seat CREATE boardroom.
Named after beloved BC composer Murray Adaskin, the Salon is a uniquely intimate, affordable, completely accessible, 44-seat black-box theatre in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
It offers a 110″ high-definition screen A/V projection system with MacMini, HDMI, and VGA inputs, and Stereo ADAM F7 studio monitors. A tech desk is available inside the box office with cable pass-through and direct view of the stage.
Our sunny, second-floor, 14-seat CREATE Boardroom is designed to facilitate creative collaboration and comes fully equipped with A/V and distance-meeting capabilities including a 60″ HD Plasma screen with HDMI & VGA inputs; 16’ x 5’ Whiteboard Wall; large flip-chart easel; and stereo sound system with CD, DAT and Vinyl. The second floor is only accessible by a flight of 19 stairs.
The Salon also offers Murray Adaskin’s 1960 Heintzman Salon Grand Piano, manufactured at the apogee of Canada’s finest piano maker and has a gorgeous, warm sound. It has been played by Sir Ernest MacMillan, Benjamin Britten, Mario Bernardi, and John Newmark, and holds a unique place in BC’s musical history. The piano was purchased in 2006 with the help of the BC Registered Teacher’s Association, was lovingly rebuilt in 2016, and is regularly maintained by Scott Harker. It comes with a matching wooden bench or a Frederick Adjustable Piano Chair.
