Symphony Hall

Located in Birmingham's Centenary Square, Symphony Hall is considered to be one of the finest concert halls in the world.

As Resident Orchestra at Symphony Hall, we gave the first ever performance in the hall with Sir Simon Rattle in 1991, and now we perform the majority of our annual concerts here too!
