Cēsis Concert Hall
A unique multi-functional cultural centre of national and regional significance, the Cēsis Concert Hall is situated in Cēsis, one of the most beautiful cities in Latvia. The concert hall was inaugurated in the spring of 2014. The visual image of the concert hall was created by restoring the old Cēsis Community Building and adding some contemporary architectural forms to it. Historical elements co-exist harmoniously with contemporary ones in the new concert hall.
The Great Auditorium can boast a unique one-of-a-kind balcony that encircles the whole auditorium and the stage, forming a complete oval. The decorative light wood shields give the auditorium a special character and ambience. The auditorium can host concerts, theatre and dance performances, as well as conferences and social events. The auditorium comfortably seats 805: 504 in the stalls and 301 in the balcony, but the number of seats can be changed and adjusted to suit the character of the event.
The stalls feature a conveniently and quickly configurable floor: transforming it from terraced rows of seats to a completely level floor will take only 30 minutes. The latter type of configuration will ideally suit banquets and balls. The orchestra pit can also be used.
The Great Auditorium has natural acoustics. The reverb time is approximately 2 seconds; at events using sound amplification equipment, reverberation can be reduced to 1.5 seconds. The reverb time is changed with the help of acoustic curtains and additional portable acoustic panels that can be used to improve the quality of sound.
When renting the Great Auditorium, the space at your disposal also includes the concert hall’s first-floor lobby and second-floor hall with access to the balcony.
Area of the Great Auditorium, including the space: 500 m2
Area of the stage: 120 – 180 m2
