Best Place to Enjoy Music in Singapore (Singapore Conference Hall)
Home to the Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) since 2001, the Singapore Conference Hall is a multipurpose building located in the heart of the financial district of Shenton Way, in the Downtown Core of Singapore. Formerly a place for conferences and exhibitions in the 1960s and 1970s, it has since been refurbished and modernised into a concert hall. The Singapore Conference Hall was a result of an idea to have a venue for international events in Singapore in 1960, and was officially opened by then-Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, on 15th October 1965. It served as the headquarters of the National Trade Union Congress (NTUC) for many years.
Gazetted as a National Monument in 2010, the Singapore Conference Hall underwent A&A works in 2017 that enhanced its position as a music oasis amidst a bustling city street. With state of the art variable acoustics, concert attendees are bound to have an unforgettable aural experience. With facilities like the Concert Hall boasting 831 seats, Exhibition Halls that can hold up to 150 people, as well as a Sectional Practice Hall that can hold 100 people, the Singapore Conference Hall is the perfect venue for any event. With a Concourse where visitors can mingle between shows and exhibitions, a VIP Lounge is also available to host speakers and special performance artists.
The Singapore Conference Hall aims to be an art centre for the people and a hub for the Arts and Music. With the best acoustics, accessible location and strong audience reach to people from all walks of life, the Singapore Conference Hall provides people from various backgrounds the perfect platform to showcase their talents, from people interested in contributing to music in Singapore to Singapore’s performing arts.
