Elder Hall is one of Australia's finest concert halls. It is located in the heart of Adelaide in the grounds of the University of Adelaide on North Terrace. It is part of the celebrated ‘boulevard of learning’ and it is close to the Art Gallery, Museum and State Library. The building is of historical significance and is registered by the National Trust. Its foundation stone was laid in 1898 and it was officially opened in 1900.
The Hall was completely refurbished in 1978 and in 1979 a spectacular organ was built and installed by Casavant Frerers of Quebec. Crafted in the French Classical tradition, it is regarded as one of the finest instruments in the country.
Elder Hall has excellent acoustics which makes it an outstanding venue for classical concerts. It is also ideal for lectures, award presentations and conferences.
