Greens Call for Adelaide Concert Hall

The Greens have called for the State Government to construct a purpose-built concert hall to cement Adelaide’s global reputation as a city of music.

In Parliament yesterday Greens MLC Tammy Franks raised that the lack of a concert hall draws into question South Australia’s ongoing commitment to its international status and called on the Government to construct a modern, purpose built and accessible Adelaide Concert Hall.
