Perth Concert Hall is renowned for having one of the finest acoustics in the southern hemisphere. The concert hall is the home and serves as the primary performance venue for the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO), and hosts a number of diverse performances and events all year round.
Perth Concert Hall was designed by architects Jeffery Howlett and Don Bailey, with construction and completion carried out by Sabemo (WA). The building was opened on Australia Day in January 1973 and serves as a prime example of the 'brutalist' mid-century architecture style.
