Partridge Family Makes Generous Donation

During a special April 2 event, Mr. Peter Partridge, The New Performing Arts Centre’s Cabinet Chairman, announced the generous gift of $1 million from his family toward the project. This incredible gift has given the main concert hall a new name: Partridge Hall.

The largest of the four venues that comprise The New Performing Arts Centre, Partridge Hall will be a spectacular 775 seat performance space with build-in adjustable acoustical features capable of serving a wide array of musical events, including instrumental, choral, orchestral, as well as providing space for the busy annual dance recital season. Peter has been has been a strong supporter of the arts throughout his life, and his commitment to this project is truly awe-inspiring.

The Partridge Family’s donation to the project kicked off a $5 million fundraising campaign. Several naming opportunities are still available. For more information on the project or to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, please contact Peter Partridge at or 905.988.5734.
