The 2,000-seat auditorium, principally for use by the renowned Montréal Symphony Orchestra under maestro Kent Nagano, is a contemporary expression of the classical shoebox concert hall design.

A warm, wood-clad interior provides an intimate and shared performance experience with superior acoustics for both musicians and audience alike.

The Symphony hall is designed to be an integral part of Place des Arts – the cultural heart of Montréal. Its position is also designed to make a connection with the new Parterre Park to the east. The activities within the glazed, four-storey lobby are clearly visible to passersby and enliven the public life of the city.

Diamond Schmitt Architects, as part of a Public Private Partnership consortium, designed the new Montréal Concert Hall in conjunction with Aedifica of Montréal. The Quebec Ministry of Culture, Communications and the Status of Women commissioned the project.  SNC-Lavalin Group is providing the construction, financing and the maintenance of the hall.
