Venue

Athens Concert Hall (Megaron Mousikis)Athens Concert Hall (Megaron Mousikis)

The Concert Hall is a fine example of modern architecture, dominating Vas. Sofias Avenue with its austere Doric lines. Prominent Greek and foreign architects and engineers were involved in designing a venue that would allow production of events and organization of international academic conferences to the highest standards, integrating state-of-the-art solutions to meet the complex needs of such a large and busy cultural centre.

The Concert Hall’s acoustics are superb, comparable with those of some of the best concert venues in the world. One of the main reasons for the high quality achieved is that the acoustic designs were commissioned first, determining the specifications then set for the architectural plans.

The whole Concert Hall is divided structurally into different sections, each enjoying complete static autonomy so that no noise or vibrations will be carried from one venue to another. This allows different events to be staged simultaneously in the various different venues.
