My City Speaks To Me goes behind-the-scenes at Studio Bell

With the National Music Centre (NMC) preparing to reopen Studio Bell on August 15, 2020, now is the perfect time to get to know this incredible non-profit museum and performance venue that is fast becoming a local gem.

Canadian singer-songwriter, producer, and actress Jully Black and NMC ‎President & CEO Andrew Mosker joined My City Speaks To Me host Lanre Ajayi earlier this year to tour this architectural wonder that’s chock-full of musical goodies, surprises, and history.

“This is one of the best buildings in not only Calgary, but Canada,” says Ajayi.

Starting this week, Studio Bell is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am to 5:00pm, operating at reduced capacity until further notice, so be sure to tune in and start planning your next visit. Reserve your ticket at
