Classical, jazz, pop, opera, and world music are right at home in Koerner Hall. Its high ceiling and first-rate projection and communication technology make it perfect for films, lectures, and educational or corporate conferences. With its layered ribbon of wood forming a floating ceiling canopy, integrating an acoustic reflector, performance lighting, and technical bridges, Koerner Hall provides a dramatic yet intimate ambience between the audience and performers. The spectacular glass lobbies welcome guests to Koerner Hall and offer an extraordinary view of the city.

I sit inside Koerner Hall, its attractive wooden framework seemingly woven in an intricate embrace from ceiling to floor, the resulting acoustics amplifying the tenor soloist’s rich opening lyrics, “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people”, and I wonder, can Christmas get any better than this...More
