ROMA, Italy, 3, 4, 5 April, Sala Santa Cecilia
The 3,400 square metre, 2,800 seat Sala Santa Cecilia (Santa Cecilia Hall) is one of the most innovative concert halls in the world of music. It was conceived for symphonic concerts, and comfortably holds both an orchestra and chorus. The ample 336 square metre stage is set in the centre, and given its modular structure, allows for perfect visibility and optimal acoustics (reverberation time is 2.2 seconds). The dimensions of the hall (1,200 square metre orchestra seating) are at the limit that allows for both natural acoustics and audience attention. As it is in all major concert halls, the audience is seated on 'terraced' risers.
