The new concert house is part of a large complex of new buildings on the Emil Holms canal in Ørestad North.
The canal was named after Emil Holm (1867-1950), a Danish opera singer who sang mainly in Germany (Dresden, Chemnitz, Leipzig, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart, also in the Bayreuth Festival of 1893). After a long and successful career as an opera singer Emil Holm became the first General Manager of the Danish State Radio from 1925 to 1937.
When I first saw the sign "DR Butikkens" in the main building (fourth photo), I thought it meant the practice of a medical doctor, but then I realized that DR meant Danish Radio, not doctor, and that Butikken was the ticket office, which was what I was looking for in the first place.
I was very impressed by the children's video corner (second photo), where children could get acquainted with the orchestra and its instruments while their parents bought tickets and T-Shirts.
