  • Elder Hall

    Capacity: 660 people

    Elder Hall is one of Australia’s finest concert halls. Known primarily as a concert and performance venue, Elder Hall is equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual capabilities and a range of flexible, functional spaces that can be adapted to a variety of needs.

    We are located in the heart of Adelaide in the grounds of the University of Adelaide on North Terrace. Part of the celebrated 'boulevard of culture and learning', Elder Hall is close to the Art Gallery, the South Australian Museum, and the State Library.

    Whether corporate conferences, seminars, public lectures, award ceremonies or concerts, Elder Hall offers personalised service and beautiful facilities in the unique, heritage listed surrounds of one of Australia’s oldest University campus.

    The Hall was completely refurbished in 1978, and again in 2006. It has a capacity of 660 seats and is suitable for professional, amateur and educational groups. In 1979 a spectacular organ built by Casavant Freres of Quebec was installed. Crafted in the French Classical tradition, the organ is regarded as one of the finest instruments in the country.

    Elder Hall may be hired on a per performance, per day, or per day and evening basis. Instrument hire is also available including a Steinway piano, percussion, organ and harpsichord.

    For larger conferences and events, Elder Hall may be hired in conjunction with other rooms, lecture theatres and facilities including the National Wine Centre, located within the University of Adelaide North Terrace Campus.

These musical settings of colossal figures of German romantic poetry like Eichendorff, Heine, Geibel and Goethe explore the feelings of melancholy, unrequited love and the transcendental beauty of nature.

Evening Concert - Masterpieces

Renowned pianist Konstantin Shamray presents an evening of pianistic masterpieces. At the centrepiece of a prodigious program is Franz Liszt’s impassioned Piano Sonata in B Minor. Now a cornerstone of the repertoire, the work was initially viewed with suspicion by Liszt’s contemporaries – its innovation and sheer virtuosity making it too ahead of its time!
