Renowned Canadian architect JC Dumaresq designed the building and it is one of his last commissions. Dumaresq was the principal designer of Dingle Tower in Halifax among numerous other architecturally significant Canadian buildings.
Service, Mr. Dumaresq believed, was architecture's guiding principle – that and the customer is always right. "Tell us what you want and we'll conceive it," he told Halifax Magazine. "Of course it takes more than one try [to get it right] … it's all about accomplished dreams."
Mazel Musical Arts Society music school and studio music space is housed in the historic Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Building of Weymouth, Nova Scotia. A beautiful, understated landmark constructed in 1906, the RBC Building was one of the first Royal Banks of Canada in Nova Scotia. Before opening Mazel Musical Arts Society, we restored and renovated the building working to preserve its architectural character.Heritage at Provincial Level Heritage at Municipal Level
Our building is not just a wonderful space to look at.
It is an acoustically magnificent building too.
It's unobstructed tall ceilings and stone and brick interior help to create a fantastic sound when musicians play here.
Mazel Musical Arts Society music school and studio was closed for Fall 2018 through 2019 classes due to fire damage from the Weymouth fire, directly across the street that took down two buildings in August, 2018. We are continuing to recover and will continue to keep you posted for some amazing inspiring musician sessions, including singing, improv and coop radio streaming. We have recently added a complete interactive 3/4 green room with lighting and sound systems and broadcasting equipment to this fine acoustical space. Though the façade is currently partially repaired, we still have to fix the roof, which was heavily damaged by the fire. The insurance company unfortunately did not respond positively to our claim to repair the roof. We are hoping to fix the roof this season, but will need community support. Thanks for your patience while we rebuild.
In today's gig economy, there are many ways to make money, even as a musician. Mazel Musical Arts believes that right now is the right time to work together in order to thrive.
With that thought in mind, we have decided to build a state of the art streaming broadcast studio, right here in Weymouth. We will soon be featuring locally originated streaming radio/tv broadcasts, featuring local artists, with local stories as well as musically knowledgeable radio hosts.
You can be a part of this and share in the subscriber profits. We build this together. Please call or email us for more information (see contact info at top of each page).
