LSO St Lukes (Jerwood Hall), Old Street, Islington, London - used by the LSO for rehearsals, recording educational outreach and smaller more intimate performances than those at the nearby Barbican. LSO St Lukes carries out a similar purpose to the Henry Wood Hall in South London where the London Philharmonic Orchestra rehearse and record works.

In terms of current development schemes

The Guildhall School of Music and Drama is constructing a new studio and new 610 seat Concert Hall as part of the Milton Court scheme near the Barbican.

The Guildhall School recently embarked on a major building project to expand its facilities. Milton Court, based across the road from the current Silk Street building, will open in 2013, providing the School with state-of-the-art performance and teaching spaces including:

• a 610-seat Concert Hall
• a 225-seat Theatre
• a Studio Theatre
• three major rehearsal rooms
• TV studio suite
• Instrumentalists and singers will rehearse and perform in solo recitals, chamber ensembles and orchestras in the new Concert Hall, with top quality fully-adjustable acoustics and the largest audience capacity of any of the London conservatoire concert halls

Designed by architects David Walker, RHWL and Arts Team, Milton Court is part of a bigger development that includes private residential accommodation and mixes living and working spaces with the performing arts. It will put the Guildhall School at the heart of an internationally significant cultural and educational quarter, forming the hub for the School’s growing relationships with the LSO and the Barbican Centre. By 2013, the School’s facilities will at long last match the outstanding quality of its training and the success of its graduates.

Curious about the thread title..."Your Cities Concert Halls", and then just pages of London concert halls? Are you planning to add more from other cities?
Otherwise maybe change the title to London Concert Halls or My Cities Concert Halls.

I was hoping that other people might be encouraged to post pics of their cities concert halls. I have already posted London's and although I would like to post the entire worlds concert halls, I don't think I have the time - LOL

It would be nice to see some other cities concert halls - which is why I entitled the thread 'your cities concert halls' :)

Of course not the entire.

The pictured halls in London are beautiful, to be sure. What are there, like a hundred pictures there? Three gold stars for you and glorious London. It'll be hard for any city to follow up that kind of page busting presentation!

Hopefully it won't be long before people from the four corners of the internet find this thread and join in with pictures of their own hometown concert venues. I suppose it could happen. In the meantime, we have a great new thread for London fans. :)

It was actually an American - John Williams who inspired my love of classical music (going to the cinena as a kid), and Williams worked with the London Symphony Orchestra on many film tracks such as Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Superman. I was going to put Williams on talking about the LSO but this forum doesn't let you embed youtube clips.

Still you can follow these links -
