The Great Amber Concert Hall

Designed by Austrian architect Volker Giencke, the Great Amber Concert Hall has been inaugurated on 7 November in Liepaja, Latvia. The new concert hall will be one of the biggest in the Baltic region, featuring 1200 seats. The project Great Amber consists of the concert hall, chamber music hall, rehearsal rooms and additional spaces.  Connected to the main building there is a Commercial and Administrative Wing.
The Great Amber will create a new cultural and social focal point for the town - with the concert hall and chamber music hall as the main attractions.

Liepaja (German: Libau) is beside Riga the third city of Latvia with 100.000 inhabitants. In geographical terms the town is located on a lagoon between the Baltic Sea and an interior lake. The importance as a musical center extends far beyond Latvia. The Liepaja Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest and most renowned orchestras in the Baltic States.
