Incredible acoustics at Symphony Hall Birmingham
When it was commissioned, the architect of Symphony Hall Birmingham was not in for an easy task: the venue is located at the heart of one of the UK's busiest cities, just 30 metres away from a railway line and on bustling, traffic-filled Broad Street. The architectural team of RHWL and Percy Thomas Partnership used an innovative combination of rubber cushions and double concrete skins to prevent vibrations, and added to the acoustics by creating an enormous reverberation chamber behind the stage. This adjustable space is matched with reflective walls, dampening panels and an acoustic canopy above the stage, all of which result in an absolutely marvellous sound experience. In 2016 the acoustics at Symphony Hall Birmingham were ranked the best in the UK and among the top ten in the world, along with the Boston Symphony Hall and Konzerthaus Berlin. Any music lover could not go wrong in getting their hands on tickets for Symphony Hall Birmingham. This is music as you have never heard it before.
