The China Post - - LOCAL -

The Na­tional Con­cert Hall in Taipei be­gan a four-month tem­po­rary clo­sure Mon­day for ren­o­va­tion af­ter 28 years of ser­vice.

The ren­o­va­tion will be un­der­way un­til Sept. 30, with chairs, sound-proof doors and wooden floors to be re­placed to pro­vide a more com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment for both the au­di­ence in at­ten­dance and the mu­si­cians, ac­cord­ing to the con­cert hall’s man­age­ment.

The ren­o­va­tion is part of the na­tional per­form­ing arts cen­ter’s “re­ju­ve­na­tion” project, which will also in­clude work to ren­o­vate the Na­tional Theater in the same com­plex next year.

Dur­ing the ren­o­va­tion, stores in the con­cert hall will still be open and the on­line tick­et­ing sys­tem will re­main up and run­ning as usual.

The con­cert hall will re­open in Oc­to­ber.

The Na­tional Con­cert Hall and Na­tional Theater, built at a cost of NT$7 bil­lion (US$228 mil­lion), was in­au­gu­rated in 1987. In 2007, the two struc­tures un­der­went a 21-month roof ren­o­va­tion project.
