A sonorous amber concert hall

A sonorous amber concert hall
Description

The idea of building a world class concert hall first occurred to Liepaja’s authorities in the late-19th century. Yet it only came to fruition in November 2015 when Great Amber opened. Great Amber is Latvia’s third and largest acoustic concert hall, with a capacity of 1,320, and the first in the Kurzeme region. Construction took 2 years and the building opened with a series of concerts.

Results

Built with EU support, the project has helped increase tourist numbers by 39% and led to the opening of new restaurants, venues and accommodation. 57 jobs have been created. The hall is home to one of the Baltic region’s oldest symphony orchestras, the Liepaja Music, Art and Design School, an art gallery and a restaurant.
