Beautiful hall with amazingly good acoustics. Sound quality was so pure it felt like I was wearing earphones. Friendly and helpful staff.

We went there to attend a classical concert to fund raise families affected by the Ukrainian war. We'd bought our tickets in advance online (highly recommended) and turned up 30 minutes prior to the show. As expected, it was packed and we had to wait 15-20 minutes to get to our seats. The queue itself was confusing (we couldn't figure out where it ended so we could also join it), the signage wasn't easily readable so we asked the staff for help and they very quickly solved our problem. The concert hall itself is beautiful and acoustics really good. Even though we were sitting at one of the last rows, we could hear notes very clearly and enjoy the performance. Overall, really good venue, I'd recommend.
Beautiful architecture and interior of this building. I was listening to the pianist, the piano Stainway and sons sounded amazing! They staff is professional and polite. Thank you, I will definitely come back again!
