Dear friends and family of the National Music Centre (NMC),
Cher amis et famille du Centre national de musique (CNM),

Following the Government of Alberta’s announcement of increased measures related to the provincial pandemic response, Studio Bell will be temporarily CLOSED to the public from Sunday, December 13 until further notice.

The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and guests are our top priority, and we will continue to do our part to keep our community safe and bend the curve.

In the meantime, NMC will continue to put our efforts toward creating and sharing digital offerings that people can enjoy online. Visit the National Music Centre’s digital platform, amplify.nmc.ca, to watch concerts recorded live from across a range of genres—including our star-studded RISE UP! gala—and participate in fun, informative videos that mirror our on-site education programs. You can also read articles about the incredible stories of music in Canada and delve into NMC’s vast collection of historic musical instruments, equipment and memorabilia. Each week, we’ll continue to add new posts for our audience to learn, explore, and enjoy from the safety of home.

As a registered charity, the National Music Centre encourages music fans to support our charitable efforts at this time. By doing so, you are helping to ensure a sustainable future for National Music Centre and our programs that bring people together through the power and spirit of music.

Please consider supporting NMC’s charitable efforts by giving in the following ways:

  • Make a one-time donation online at studiobell.ca/donate or become a monthly donor at and be the steady rhythm that keeps NMC on beat.
  • Buy or renew an NMC Membership at 50% off until the end of 2020. Become a member at studiobell.ca/become-a-member.
  • Visit the NMC Gift Shop online at nmcgiftshop.ca to shop locally made music-inspired gifts from the comfort of your couch. The Gift Shop will remain open at 15% capacity on weekends from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, so you can continue to safely shop in person.
  • Purchase a custom-designed Legacy Vinyl record at studiobell.ca/legacy-vinyl and be visible to all who visit Studio Bell over the next 10 years.
  • Read, watch, and listen to the stories, videos, and concerts we continue to publish on amplify.nmc.ca and please like and share with your networks.

Stay positive. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
