Victoria Concert Hall

HOME OF THE SSO

The Victoria Concert Hall is the oldest concert hall in Singapore and has been the Home of the SSO since 1980. The 673-seat hall is part of the Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall complex which reopened in July 2014 after an extensive renovation that both preserved the historical beauty of the buildings and created an intimate performance space for music groups of different sizes.

What's on at Victoria Concert Hall #

The SSO works with our own musicians and international artists to present world-class chamber performances as part of our VCHpresents series of concerts, as well as intimate SSO subscription concerts, concerts for families and other special events. Discover the VCHpresents season here.

Besides the SSO's own programmes, the VCH and its rehearsal spaces are also available for public booking through the VTVCH venue operator, Arts House Limited, which can be reached at enquiries.vtvch@artshouse.sg. VCH is equipped with a 2,012-pipe 31-stop manual Klais organ.

Experience Victoria Concert Hall 360° #

The Victoria Concert Hall’s Klais organ is Singapore’s only fully mechanical organ, and has strong emotional links with generations of audiences. It was first installed in 1987 through fundraising efforts from the then-newly formed Singapore Symphony Orchestra Ladies’ League.

You can find a state-of-the-art recording space at the Victoria Concert Hall. The Rose Studio features a recording control room with both mixing and editing facilities, making it the only concert hall in Asia for both live and closed-door recordings of classical and acoustic music. The Rose Studio is operated by msm-productions (Singapore) — the Asian subsidiary of msm-studios, the Munich-based recording house closely associated with the recordings of the Munich Philharmonic and Valery Gerviev, and also the first Dolby-certified Dolby Atmos Home® mixing facility in Germany.
