Elisabeth Murdoch Hall

The Best Place to Hear

Intimate and acoustically superb, Elisabeth Murdoch Hall features exquisite architectural design and world class technical facilities. Drawing influence from the traditional box shape of European concert halls, it is lined with plywood panels of Australian plantation Hoop Pine timber, designed to resemble the back of an instrument and provide greater acoustic intimacy across the auditorium.

Comprising a raked stalls level, circle, distinctive split-level balconies and a stepped platform ceiling, the platform acoustics enrich the strength, clarity and blending of instruments as well as the communication between ensemble players on stage.

A brilliant marriage of the classical and the progressive, Elisabeth Murdoch Hall is the perfect music venue for small and medium-sized ensembles, orchestras, solo artists, choral works as well as performances of the spoken word.

Named after the Centre’s Founding Patron Dame Elisabeth Murdoch AC DBE, the Hall truly is ‘…a living space for making, sharing and enjoying great music.’
