Your Participation Can Mean $1 Million


Looking beyond what is
imagining what could be

After four decades of continuous use, the 300-seat Koerner Recital Hall – the heart of VAM – is poised for a transformation. This ambitious $1 Million renovation aims to bring it forth into the 21st century and celebrate a dramatic turning point in the life of the Hall. The completion of this milestone project will transform the entire concert-going experience for future audiences, the students of VAM, and the entire performing arts community of Vancouver.
