Arts Centre Melbourne's Hamer Hall, the city's premier concert venue, hosts a range of performances across all music styles.
It is home to the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the preferred Melbourne performance venue for the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
With technical capability to host an extensive range of concerts Hamer Hall attracts a broad range of local, national and international artists, showcasing jazz, rock, pop, multi-cultural, chamber and cabaret and contemporary bands as well as classical musicians.
A recent two-year closure saw significant changes to the venue, including improvements to the foyers and foyer bars, ticketing and merchandise facilities, increased auditorium comfort and better acoustics.
The redevelopment, which resulted from Victorian Government allocation of $135.8m, also made several changes to the external parts of the site, including adding a new entrance at river level and the addition of a dining precinct, overlooking the Yarra River.
The venue seats 2464 people over three levels. It opens 90 minutes before a scheduled performance.
