About us

About Music @ Mill Road: We are a group of volunteer music makers and music lovers dedicated to building a vibrant sound hub at the historic Grace United Church in Chelsea, Quebec.

Whether you like to listen, perform, teach, learn, sing, play, jam or record - the funky and intimate atmosphere and rich acoustics of the church’s sanctuary casts a spell over audiences and performers alike. Our concert programming is driven by the musical talent and creative zest of our residents, partners and our plugged-in community music curators who hand pick our shows.

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.
