This is not your typical classical concert venue. Located in the heart of the central business district, this centre is owned and operated by the Freemasons, a fraternal organisation that has a long history in Australia. The venue features a range of event spaces, including a grand auditorium, which is perfect for intimate concerts. It has excellent acoustics and the seating capacity can reach up to 600. But perhaps what’s most striking about the building, is its distinguished Brutalist exterior. The juxtaposition of the heavy-looking and concrete architecture with the paradisaical classical music in a setting filled with hundreds of flickering candles, is an unreal experience that everyone should try at least once in their lives.

The Concert Hall is particularly sensational for intimate concerts because it not only has impeccable acoustics but also an inviting and cozy atmosphere. The Concourse is great to catch a show, so this season you can soak up the creative vibes in a series of Candlelight concerts.
