Concert Hall Latvija and Ventspils Music School Concert Hall Latvija and Ventspils Music School concludes transformation of Lielais Square in Ventspils, leading to creation of a new city centre. Careful planning has allowed housing of the Large hall of 600 seats, Music School, Music Library, recording studio and chamber hall under one roof. Chamber hall can be transformed into an open-air stage adjacent to amphitheatre in Lielais Square. Concert Hall offers excellent acoustics, its centrepieces are a pipe organ and 4,7m vertical piano. Sustainability of the building is ensured, among others, through climate and lights management systems.
