City Recital Hall Reviews
Went to see the English Baroque with Circa | Australian Brandenburg Orchestra. Was truly a fun night out. more »
I’ve been to many performances here and the acoustics and quality of the experience great. The smaller size creates a closer relationship between the audience and performers Staff very helpful more »
A visit to the City Recital Hall is always a very pleasant and uplifting experience. Richard Gill's birthday celebration on 5/11/18 was no exception. The auditorium has very crisp acoustics, comfortable seats - not a bad seat in the house for viewing and listenening to a performance. Bars at each of the 3 levels ensure patrons are adequately fed and 'watered'. Friendly staff always available to assist
City Recital Hall is located in Angel Place just off Martin Pl in central Sydney. Martin Pl & Wynyard rail stations plus numerous bus services are in close proximity. The Recital Hall opened in 1999. It was built specifically for the purpose of oration, chamber music and solo performance. The acoustics in this 1240 seat hall is specifically designed for such performance. The entire hall is mounted with rubber bearings to eliminate vibration. Overall, the hall can be described as acoustically beautiful. There are a multitude of cafes, restaurants and bars to pick up a meal or a refreshing ale or wine. City Recital Hall is a world class venue and attracts the best of National and International performance. Sydney City Council have been the major sponsor for City Recital Hall since its inception
