About the Music Hall: The wood framed Grace United Church, built in 1875, still holds Sunday services - but over the last five years it has also grown into a much loved a place for music. It’s Chelsea’s living room with the vibe of a house concert. The venue is a hit with musicians from far and wide due to the sound quality produced by its wooden structure, original floor boards and soaring ceiling. It’s become home to a thriving fiddle school and musical theatre, a fiddle festival, and a popular open mic session. The space is available for rent for independent performances.
