RGB LED Lighting originated in the entertainment and performance industry so it is only fitting that a concert hall would utilise RGB LED lighting to communicate its night time identity.
Hamer Hall Arts Centre, Melbourne
Hamer Hall Arts Centre first opened on 6 November 1982 as the Melbourne Concert Hall and quickly became the premier venue for orchestral performances in Melbourne. In 2004 it was renamed Hamer Hall Arts Centre in honour of former Victorian Premier Sir Rupert Hamer AC, KCMG ED, who served from 1972–81 and championed the building of what has become Arts Centre Melbourne.
Hamer Hall Arts Centre is home to The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra – one of Australia’s flagship resident companies – and is the preferred venue in Melbourne for the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
Redevelopment of Hamer Hall
The $128.5 million dollar construction of Hamer Hall was scheduled to begin in 2010. The redevelopment of the venue was the first stage of the Southbank Cultural Precinct Redevelopment.
The redevelopment included a new outlook to the city and new connections to central Melbourne, St Kilda Road and the Yarra River, new and expanded foyer spaces, improved amenities, new stairs, improved disability access, escalators and lifts as well as improved acoustics, new auditorium seating and staging systems.
Hamer Hall reopened on 26 July 2012 with an opening concert featuring Caroline O’Connor, k.d. lang, Eddie Perfect and Lior with live orchestra.
