At once intimate and breathtaking, the magnificent Bourgie Hall is both a 444-seat concert hall and a showcase for the Museum's stained glass window collection, which is the only one of its kind in Canada. Each year, more than a hundred concerts are presented in the concert hall. Its size is ideally suited to the needs of chamber music ensembles and other small musical groups. The space's excellent acoustics are already well known.

The hall includes 311 removable seats, ingeniously designed by Michel Dallaire, on the orchestra level, and 133 seats using the original pews, now with cushions, on the balcony. The hall's interior was designed to ensure that the heritage elements were respected.

Bourgie Hall is professionally equipped (light and sound boards, dressing rooms and rehearsal hall) and boasts two new Steinway pianos, two harpsichords and a clavicytherium, as well as an organ with twelve stops built by Montreal-based builder Hellmuth Wolff.

The flexibly designed concert hall can accommodate various configurations and styles of installation, facilitated by the use of motorized scenic equipment.
