Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall

Beloved by the great maestros around the world. Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall is a concert hall in Saiwai-ku, Kawasaki, Kanagawa. The name is coined from music and za lit. 'seat'. The vineyard-style concert hall, with a capacity of 1,997, was built for the eightieth anniversary of the foundation of the city.

The hall consists of 1,997 seats which surround the stage in a spiral form, typically known as the vineyard-style. The structure enriches the quality of music while creating a sense of togetherness between the audience and the musicians. With a focus on classical music, it presents a diverse range of music. MUZA Kawasaki Symphony Hall is one of the most acoustically sophisticated halls receiving high acclaim from many great artists around the world and it continues to evolve, just like a musical instrument, in its quest to achieve the finest sound resonances.

The hall opened in July 2004 with a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 8 by the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. In that year the orchestra, previously without a permanent home, took up residence. Well known for its acoustics, the hall has seen concerts by Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic and Riccardo Muti and the Vienna Philharmonic. The bell to announce the imminent start of a concert at the hall is a recording of the bell at Salzburg Cathedral.
