Since Symphony Hall opened in 1991, it has been acclaimed as one of the finest concert halls in the world by critics, performers and public alike. The classical music programme is complemented by rock, pop, folk, country and jazz music, and even stand-up comedy.

The renowned acoustics of the Hall have attracted virtually every established musical figure on the world stage, and have also enabled the CBSO to record many award-winning discs. In October 2001, Symphony Hall celebrated the inauguration of its magnificent new Symphony Organ built by Klais, a company of German organ builders.
