International Concert Halls

Other people can tell you which concert halls are the oldest, the most beautiful, or most acoustically wonderful...I am just going to show you some concert halls that caught my eye. Fair enough? There are many fantastic concert halls, but some you might have seen already (the Sydney Opera House, for instance). So I wanted to share a range of different types, ones you might not have seen before.
