Xinghai Concert Hall is the concert hall in Guangzhou, and plays host to the cities most prestigious events from music shows to opera.
Named after a well-known Chinese composer, Xinghai Concert Hall is taken as the best concert venue in Guangzhou. The modern concert is divided into Symphony Performing Hall, Chamber Music Hall, Recording Room, Material Room and Intro to Instruments. Located at the riverside of Ersha Island, Xinghai Concert Hall, Guangdong Arts Center and Guangdong Huaqiao Museum formed a large-scaled cultural center in Guangzhou.
The symphony performing Hall was designed on the basis of natural sound, using reinforced concrete shell of hyperbolic paraboloids to cover the “Mountain valley-Terraced fields” seats so that the surfaces of these two parts directly form a “sound field”. The architectural structural space is a acoustics one. The hard interior surface of the reinforced concrete shell and the sidewall of the parquet seat areas serve as the interface of the reflection and diffusion of the music sound. In addition, a spheric diffuser hung above the performing stage improves the mutually heard condition on the performing stage and reinforces the early reflected sound for the front seat areas.
