Rebecca Cohn, Halifax

Most of our concerts happen at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, on the campus of Dalhousie University in Halifax. The Rebecca Cohn is part of the Dalhousie Arts Centre.

The Rebecca Cohn is the largest soft-seat theatre in the region, where many of Nova Scotia’s most memorable performances have taken place. Its seating capacity for Symphony performances ranges from 980 to 1020, including a balcony and no obstructed views. It has a full range of stage, lighting, and sound technologies, air conditioning, and a smoke and scent-free policy. There are also candy cart and bar services available, in addition to our Symphony Boutique where you can peruse our CD selection.
