Sorry kasong, it is not.
kantahan ni Mary ang silid=Mary sings the room
Ang silid kung saan kumakanta si Mary=the room where Mary sings

Kantahan ni Maria ang silid.
 
@kasong
 
Kantahan yet again is the infinitive so it has no meaning here.
 
Kakantahan ni Maria ang silid.
 
Mary will sing TO the room . So no it doesn’t work.

@kasong the sentence can mean Maria sang for the room
 
A clearer sentence:
 
Sa silid kumakanta si Maria.

@kasong the sentence is correct, kantahan means a place for singing.

@PinoyTaj kantahan is a noun when you pronounce it slow. it becomes a noun. i am a tagalog teacher, so you can trust me.

kantahan (pronounced fast)--sing someone a song
kantahan ( pronounced slow)-1.. a place designated for singing. 2. a singing activity/party

Pinagkakantahan would be a clearer word to use especially if there is no context provided.
 
Pinagkakantahan ni Maria ang silid
 
Case in point: I interpreted OPs sentence as Maria is singing to the room.
 
To use kantahan, as a noun, you will have to establish the context first esp in written form.
 
Parang, malaki ang suso vs malaki ang suso 😅😅😅. Yung isa bastos, yung isa hindi.
