Limelight magazine have a teaser about the acoustics of Australia’s great concert halls.
They happily reveal that the Sydney Opera House has not done well in their top 20.
But how does Canberra rate?
You’ll have to buy a copy of Limelight to get the full charts. But I can reveal Canberra’s Llewellyn Hall, tucked into the School of Music, has performed creditably.
For orchestra it rated tenth, for chamber music 11th, and for voice 17th (still beating the Sydney Opera House).
Overall it came 11th in the nation.
Could do better, but for a city of under half a million not too shabby.
For what it’s worth Perth Concert Hall is pretty much the bomb.
