Hamer Hall, Melbourne’s premier concert venue, provides the best opportunities for artists and audiences to experience live music performed by the finest musicians from around the world. Located at the gateway to Melbourne’s cultural precinct, Hamer Hall has recently undergone a two-year $135.8 million redevelopment which has brought to the venue a new level of comfort for audiences, both in the auditorium and foyers, while both musicians and audiences now benefit from improvements to stage technology and acoustic performance, making this one of the world’s most sought-after concert venues. With interior design improvements which have streamlined the connection between the performers and their audience, and a new level of comfort from special designed seating and lighting, the hall has set a new benchmark for orchestral music enjoyment.
MSO subscribers can pre-book parking in the Australian Ballet Centre Car Park for the discounted price of $17 dollars. To book please contact the box office on 9929 9600.
