Our Birmingham Venues

We are fortunate in Birmingham to have several marvellous concert halls.

Symphony Hall

The hall was opened in 1991 and is one of the world’s great concert halls.  Simon Rattle and the CBSO were influential in the hall’s inception.  Thousands of marvellous performances have taken place here.  The City of Birmingham Choir first performed in Symphony Hall on 27th April 1991: Mozart’s Solemn Vespers (K339) and Mass in C Minor (K427).  MORE INFORMATION

Town Hall

An historic venue, opened in 1834 and extensively renovated for its reopening in 1997. Premieres of Mendelssohn’s Elijah and Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius are just two of many musical firsts.  28th November 1921 saw the City of Birmingham Choir’s first concert there.  MORE INFORMATION

Elgar Concert Hall

at the University of Birmingham

100 years after the opening of the original Aston Webb building, the iconic, red-brick heart of the University since 1909, the Bramall Music Building finally completes Joseph Chamberlain’s original architectural vision and is the home of the university’s music department.  The 450-seat auditorium is the most flexible performance space at a UK university – suitable for performances from solo voice, early music, to a full symphony orchestra.
