A new concert hall for the Brno Philharmonic has arrived. For the time being, of course, in miniature, but as an absolutely faithful copy. It arrived at the exhibition grounds in Brno today, where a team led by global acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota will carry out acoustic measurements and check its calculations.
Rehearsal rooms, stores, a recording studio, tuning rooms and dressing rooms for the musicians, a box office, café and other facilities for visitors, and in particular a modern concert hall with the perfect acoustics. The Janáček Cultural Centre will be all this. The city is another step closer to its construction – Phase 2 of the project, following on from the already-completed underground garages, has received final planning permission.
Nagata Acoustics leading by renowned Yasuhisa Toyota is a world-class company that designed globally acclaimed concert halls all around the world and now in Brno! So look at the pictures of a few of their newest halls.
Nagata Acoustics America, Konior Studio and Architekti Hrůša & spol., Atelier Brno. That is the team which will supply a project documentation for building permit and a project documentation for the above-ground part of Janáček Cultural Centre – the new home for Brno Philharmonic. „I am so happy we finally know the winner! The competitive tendering was very demanding and complicated“ says Mayor of Brno Petr Vokřál. „I am very satisfied with the winning company – Nagata is one of the most recognized acoustic companies of the world.“
“Let´s travel in time.” That is a name of summer arcamp hosted by Brno Philharmonic Orchestra in cooperation with Moravian Gallery. There were about 40 children travelling to the past but also to the future – they sang a song about our building in the location of our planned Concert Hall.

Jaroslav Ježek composed his well known Bugatti Step after meeting with Luis Chiron during races in Masaryk Circuit. That composition was the first one played in the location of the new Concert Hall by pianist and the Philharmonic´s soilist of the season Igor Ardašev. The untraditional concert in helmets and in high-visibility vests took place on the base board in the depth of 10 metres. We used this event to filmed a video spot for supporting the buiding of the new Concert Hall so there was no audience during the concert. Igor Ardašev said: „I have never performed on the place like this one. I have to admit there was a surprisingly great acoustics.“ The spot is going to be out during autumn but you can find a report about this event in section „Napsali o nás“.
