This magnificent Victorian Gothic Revival building is a brilliant concert hall and one of Greater Johnstown's premier special-events venues. Music, ranging from Bach to original folk, is performed here regularly year-round. And the Halle's ambiance, spaciousness and flexibility are proving ideal for weddings and receptions.

This building's electrical and fire-security systems have been upgraded, and air-conditioning has been added. Larger ADA-compliant restrooms have been installed, and a catering room now enables caterers to effectively serve event guests. An architectural study has identified the building's structural issues and provided the foundation for a long-term building-conservation plan.

Originally known as Immaculate Conception, this church served a German-immigrant parish founded in 1859. The present building was designed by Cleveland, Ohio, architect William P. Ginther and built from 1906 to 1908. Its outstanding features include an open Gothic-arched interior with a vaulted ceiling that blends into window bays. Beautiful, richly hued stained glass is Germanic in style and was created by Munich-trained artisans at a Columbus, Ohio, firm. The Adam Stein Company of Baltimore, MD, hand-made the Halle's 32-rank (2,000 pipes) pipe organ in 1900. Rich and resonate in tone, the organ often is featured during music performances and is listed in the national Organ Historical Society Database.

This building survived the 1936 and 1977 Johnstown floods and a devastating fire in 1983. Now the Grand Halle on Broad Street has emerged from three years of vacancy to become a vibrant new cultural venue in Cambria City!
