A Concert Hall is a building or sometimes a room inside a larger building built specifically for the performance of live music, mainly from the classical tradition.
Concert halls differ from theatres in a number of ways: open stage, no or very limited back stage area, significantly different acoustic design, no fly tower, orchestra pit, wings etc. Concert Halls may have a large organ built into their fabric, often with parts of the organ, including the console occupying a prominent position at the rear of the stage area. Equally the rear of the stage often rises in a series of tiers to accommodate sections of an orchestra and choral singers. In many cases, the Sydney Opera House Sydney Opera House being a good example, theatres and concert halls share backstage and front-of-house facilities in a single building.
Notable concert halls include: Tonhalle Tonhalle, Zurich; Musikverein Musikverein, Vienna; Royal Albert Hall the Royal Albert Hall, London; Holywell Music Room Holywell Music Room, Oxford Royal Festival Hall Royal Festival Hall, London.
