In which concert hall do you dream to play
If you can play with an orchestra of your choice in different concert halls, which concert hall you'll like to play in?
For me, it'll be the Sydney Opera House
Seiji Ozawa Hall in Lenox, Massachusetts.
Some—any—hall with naturally good acoustics. I always seem to end up mic-ed in the carpet-covered foam-celinged audititoriums of churches and convention centres.
Carnegie Hall would be nice, but I think thats unlikely. At least for a few years yet
In my dream I'm on the platform of the Royal Albert Hall, unrehearsed and stark naked
Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles
I’d quite like to play at the Albert Hall again! Otherwise, Carnegie and I quite fancy being in the ballet orchestra for the Bolshoi ballet in Russia :)
I've already performed in the Kennedy Center so I can safely retire.
The Berlin philharmonie
I also agree with Mark and David. They would be good places to play too
For me, any concert hall would be great, considering that I'll never be a professional musician. But if you ask me, playing at the concert hall where the International Chopin piano competition is held would be my dream, both as a violin and a piano amateur.
Paul Deck which concerto did you play?
Not a specific hall, but my dream job would be in the second violin section at one of the European Light Opera venues, like Volksoper, Vienna. Why not big Opera?--I don't want to play Wagner. I can't narrow it down to one, but an historically important Opera house,like Palais Garnier, Paris, Versailles Palace, Teatro Fenice, Venice, San Carlo,Naples, and Teatro Amazona, Menaus, Brazil. Memorable places where I Have played include Virginia City Opera house, Nevada, and, I played Irish fiddle tunes in the lowest basement of Alcatraz prison, which has good acoustics.
