"Concert in He Luting Concert hall" Shanghai Off The Beaten Path Tip by flyer31

Shanghai Off The Beaten Path: 169 reviews and 248 photos


The He Luting concert hall is an older style concert hall with a relatively ordinary rectangular shape and an impressioning wooden wall - otherwise quite "spartanic", but nice and good chairs. It is located in the middle of the campus of the Music university of Shanghai, where also Lang Lang comes from. The campus is between the stations South Shanxi and Changshu Road (in the north there is the luxurious Donghu hotel - so it is also between Donghu hotel and Yu garden).

I saw there a presentation of the BG Choir (www.bgchoir.org), giving Chinese folk songs in modern interpretation, this was extremely nice. I was lucky to pass by one day earlier and meet some students who showed me the (extremely hidden) box office (in another building, a woman speaking only Chinese) and got the second last ticket for me.

The presentations in this concert hall seem to be presented in http://www.culture.sh.cn/english, which is a very helpful site (except booking online does not work and it can get quite an adventure to find the concert hall locations, as they give only the street names, no maps).
