The Symphonic Hall
The Symphonic Hall was built specifically for the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra and for symphonic music. The hall was opened in 2007 and is decorated by Ingvar Cronhammer.
The hall has been decorated with nordic colors using light ashwood, grey acoustic panels, and black seats. As a contrast, the back walls are red.
The Symphonic Hall has a ceiling height of around 25 meters and is equipped with two balconies as well as side balconies that are accessible from the floor. The elevated podium behind the stage has room for a large choir.
Apart from symphonic concerts, the hall can also be used for awards ceremonies, opening ceremonies or presentations. The built-in organ is the perfect backdrop and it can be lit up with different colors.
A Unique Organ
The Symphonic Hall's new concert organ is built into the back wall. The Orgelbau Klais organ was used for the first time in December of 2010. It was given to The Concert Hall of Aarhus and the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra by the A.P. Møller og hustru Chastine McKinney Møllers Fond til almene formål fund.
And thus, The Symphonic Hall, which already had unique acoustics, is now gifted with a unique instrument that gives the hall even more possible uses. The organ weighs 16.4 tonnes and has 3,200 pipes and 47 stops.
