Robin and Winifred Wood Recital Hall

A bright, inviting performance space for intimate events.

Intimate Ambiance

The 100-seat Robin and Winifred Wood Recital Hall, formerly the Spencer Chapel, provides space for small-scale music performances, solo recitals, lectures, and rehearsals.

This charming space features zig-zag walls and stained-glass windows depicting uniquely West Coast scenes: a logging truck zooming down a mountain road; a fishing boat at anchor; bathers enjoying the beach. The hall is in constant use, mostly for Victoria Conservatory of Music needs such as postsecondary classes and student recitals.

    Robin and Winifred Wood

    The hall is dedicated in memory of Principal Emeritus Robin Wood (d. 2004) and Vice Principal Emerita Winifred Scott Wood (d. 2012), who together made an outstanding and lasting musical contribution to the Conservatory and our community. In 1964 when their musical careers were flourishing in London, the young couple were invited to help the newly-opened Victoria School of Music gain momentum. Robin and Winifred dedicated their lives to the Conservatory, and their legacies live on through the countless students they taught – some of whom remain as instructors here today.
