Reconstruction of the concert hall will give an opportunity to extend the concert season, which currently ends in late August/ early September, right before the autumn approaches. Given that the closed concert hall’s acoustical quality is very much appreciated, it will allow Jūrmala to offer high-quality musical performances in the winter season. Dzintari concert hall after renovation will be a high-level conferences and other corporate events venue that can take up to 600 persons. Not only the concert hall will be reconstructed, but also the underground area – it will be designed to create modern changing rooms, as well as other functional rooms. Closed concert hall will be used for the purposes of organizing conferences in the future. It should be noted that the concert hall has a very good location, practically on the beach and only a few hundred meters from the Jomas street that is a visiting card of Jūrmala. Concert hall is located in close proximity to a number of hotels, spa hotels and guest houses that allows combining work with pleasure, relaxing after the conferences and feeling the breath of a beautiful and inspiring city – Jūrmala.
The reconstruction of the concert hall will be carried out in two stages, therefore it won’t affect the summer concert seasons!!!
