What are the top concert halls in Europe?
My dream is to get a Eurail pass, do a tour of several concert halls, and listen to great music. Let's say I visit 10. This will be a once in a lifetime trip. Which ones do you recommend and why? PS I also might like to slip a folk music festival in there too. Your thoughts?
Question answered by John
The best i have been are
- Royal Albert hall of London
- Barcelona RazzMatazz
In summer time, much better to enjoy open air concerts. In Italy, i would suggest you
- Zucchero concent in Arena of Verona (from 2nd to 7th of June) or Deep Purple on 18th of June
- Italia Wave in Lecce / South of italy - http://www.italiawave.com/archivio-news/7894-i-primi-nomi-di-italia-wave-love-festival-2011
What are some decent classical music concert halls on the east coast?
I'm a music business student trying to find an internship in the programming department at a decent concert hall that typically features classical music. If you could just list some in the northeast coast US area, that would be great. I know of a few, but I'm sure i've missed many. Thanks!

Why do they clap in a concert hall when you perform?
Say you just performed sonata no 1 by Beethoven in a huge concert hall, so everyone claps right? Right, but why do they not clap in a music store when you perform this same piece? Also, say you performed just how you did in front of thousands.
Question answered by Song Of Songs
I guess because people coming to the music store wouldn't know how to react or what was expected of them. Whenever people don't know what to do they tend to do nothing! Also in a concert hall, people have come for the express purpose of listening to the music - the applause is expected.
What are the dress requirements for concert halls?
I'm going to the Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh for a concert on saturday and I don't know how to dress for a concert hall.
What are the requirements?
Question answered by micropanther
Well, i don't know Heinz Hall, but in general you can go with:
Orchestra, Opera, Chamber Music - dress clothes. Depending on the performers and the situation dress ranges from Sunday-go-to-meeting type clothes to formal gowns. My guess would be that a girl of your age could wear the "little black dress", maybe a bit longer one. If it's as cold in Pittsburgh as it can be, you might want to go for a dressy suit.
Operetta, NPR personalities, performers of the Frank Sinatra era, big band era shows, performing arts series shows, etc. You can go with business casual or the clothes your mother actually want you to wear. Again, the little black dress is almost never wrong.
Comedians, current performers, hip hop all the way back to 60's bands, since you are indoors, I'd still go with khakis or hole-less jeans. If you dress up a little no one will care. I wouldn't go for the formal gown, but that little black dress would still be great.
As an afterthought, call the box office and ask what the expected attire will be. The person who answers has no idea who you are and will be glad to tell you what s/he's seen for similar shows.
So, who're you going to see?
What is the name of the Arabic song with five singers in a concert hall?
I saw this beautiful song on an Arabic music channel with two girls and three boys singing in an elaborate concert hall. Someone wrote down the name for me, but unfortunately I can't read Arabic yet! Sorry the details are so vague. Apparently the song is quite popular right now.
Question answered by Mayoush
I think you're talking about a song sung by Tamer Hosni, Haytham Shaker, Rami Ayash, Yara and Janat called "Omi", meaning "Mother". It is a beautiful song. :)
Is it possible that this concert hall could be profit maximizing?
A concert hall sets ticket prices in its balcony section that result in some empty seats in the balcony. Assume that the concert hall must charge the same price to everyone buying a balcony seat. Is it possible that this concert could be profit maximizing? If so, explain how. If not, why not?
Please help, not sure how to do this one. A numerical example would be nice but its not necessary. Thank you!
Question answered by SDD
Yes it's possible.
Suppose at $12/ticket they can sell 85 of the 100 seats and in order to sell all 100, they would have to charge $10.
They generate $20 more revenue by charging $12
What are good classical concerts coming up at the Walt Disney Concert Hall?
I want to buy tickets to a show at the Walt Disney Concert Hall as a gift for someone who likes classical music. However, I don't know anything about it. Does anyone have a recommendation for a show on the weekend in March/April/May?
"Blomstedt conduct Beethoven" and "Rattle conducts Bruckner" mean nothing to me! Help!
Question answered by Hans Bjornsson
After looking at their line-up for those months (if I were going), I would go with either Schubert's 9th or Mozart's Don Giovanni. They're both fantastic and I'm sure your friend would love either one.
Is the attire to the walt disney concert hall formal? or can it be business casual?
I am attending the concert tonight for vivaldi's four seasons, its my first time at the walt disney concert hall; therefore, i was wondering if anyone has been there. Usually you can get away with business casual, but how is it there? is it formal?
Question answered by jellybeanchick
I have never heard of a concert requiring formal attire. Maybe if it is called a Black Tie Gala or something. If there is no indication of formality (like "black tie") I think you can safely wear business casual.
What shapes does the Walt Disney concert Hall has?
The walt disney concert hall has some awesome shapes outside, but i don't know if they can be named. I would like to know a good way to describe the shapes of the outside(rectangles, circles maybe, IDK), some pictures can be found on google. Please help, thanks.
Question answered by Disney Dreamer ♥
I would describe it not as shapes but it is abstract art, it not meant to be a shape it is rounded, waves and points. It is supposed to be art, and I think it is, it is an amazing architectural piece.
Hoped this helped *Jena
What kind of structural system was used in building Walt Disney Concert Hall?
What kind of structural system was used in building Walt Disney Concert Hall?
Is it shell? or skeleton-and-skin system?
Question answered by Ted H
The design represents the style of their creator, architect Frank Gehry, could be considered a work of art in itself.
The building is essentially a SHELL which consists of a series of interconnected volumes, some form of orthogonal coated stone and other forms of organic and surfaces covered with a corrugated metal SKIN of steel. As a bridge between the different volumes are used glazed surfaces.
The structural system for the Concert Hall is a complex set of interconnected steel braced frames and trusses.
Originally, a structural steel moment frame system was envisioned for the project. However, in light of the
experience with steel moment frames during the 1994 Northridge earthquake, a braced frame alternative was
substituted. The difficulty in utilizing steel moment frame system for this structure is particularly due to the fact that most "beams and "columns" of the structure intersect at non-orthogonal angles. Furthermore, on many cases several structural straight and curved members intersect at odd angles at a single point in space.
Plenty of modifications had to be made to the building, all the stainless steel covering the building had a very large reflection and neighboring communities complained about the glare, as well as it heating up buildings to an unbearable point, because the external panels were given a matte finish. In 2005 the panels were lightly sanded down to reduce further glare and heat reflection.
