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.
Although Adelaide was designated as Australia's first UNESCO City of Music in 2015 and hosts world class music events including WOMADelaide, the Cabaret Festival and the Adelaide Guitar Festival, it remains the only capital city in Australia without a dedicated concert hall.
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.
Quotes attributable to Tammy Franks MLC:
“Adelaide’s status as the only capital city without a concert hall puts a question mark over our commitment to truly living up to our international reputation as a UNESCO City of Music.”
“We have much to celebrate in our long, proud musical history. A concert hall would ensure that we continue to support a vibrant music scene in the present and build on our past achievements.”
“A concert hall would be so much more than just a high-quality auditorium for classical and orchestral music. It would also provide music education and community services to become a new home of music in Adelaide.”
