National Concert Hall closed for renovation
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.
