Unique in design and location, City Recital Hall has earned a place in Sydney's history. This world class performance space is the first specially designed concert venue to be built in Sydney since the Opera House in 1973 and its opening had musicians and audiences throughout Sydney applauding.
"The half-century wait, it seems, has been worth it."
– Sydney Morning Herald
This finely tuned recital hall with a capacity of 1,238 seats has been designed for quality of sound, to enhance enjoyment of audiences, soloists, chamber ensembles, chamber orchestras, contemporary bands, popular musicians and the spoken word.
