Grande-Duchesse Joséphine Charlotte concert hall
Located in Luxembourg-Kirchberg, the Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte Concert Hall or Philharmonie de Luxembourg boasts magnificent modern architecture. It’s a magical place, day and night, and well worth a visit.
Renowned architect Christian de Portzamparc designed the building, which was completed in 2005. In addition to the Philharmonie, he also designed numerous buildings in Europe and elsewhere.
The Philharmonie has 3 halls. The Grand Auditorium, with its extraordinary architecture and design, can accommodate 1,500 listeners. The Salle de Musique de Chambre seats 300 for these more intimate concerts. The 180-seat Espace Découverte hosts children’s concerts and musical projects.
Acoustics have been given special attention in all rooms. A concert in the Grand Auditorium with choirs is an extraordinary experience.
Symphony program and concerts
The building hosts over 400 performances a year of all styles of music: jazz, pop, classical and world music.
The Philharmonie is home to the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra.
With its hundred or so musicians, the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra offers a wide range of concerts. These are available by subscription or over the counter at the Philharmonie Luxembourg.
The symphonic program is very varied. It covers both the classical and contemporary repertoires. The Philharmonie also offers pop concerts, film-concerts and concert cycles for young audiences.
In addition to traditional cycles of classical, world, contemporary, chamber and jazz music, the Philharmonie also organizes “Yoga & music” and “2xhören” concerts. Introductory sessions allow to meet the artists.
