Introduction

Built in 1987, the National Chiang Kai-Shek Cultural Center at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall are the first national-level cultural venues in Taiwan. In addition to hosting major performances, the two major buildings of the center—the National Theater and National Concert Hall—are major Taipei landmarks. The two buildings are designed in a traditional Chinese palace style, with distinctive yellow tiled roofs and red pillars adding to their stately elegance.

In addition to enjoying world-class musical, dance and theater performances, center visitors can also tour the cultural gallery and performing arts library. The center also offers regular guided tours for a more in-depth look at the world of performance arts in Taipei.

    A Terrific Concert Venue

    2019-10

    I had the good fortune to attend a concert of the Formosa Singers at the National Concert Hall. The performance was wonderful, but this review is about the concert hall itself. Other reviewers have written about the exterior of the building. Inside, in addition to the concert hall itself, there are two restaurants, a very nice gift shop, and a shop that has something to do with violins. The hall itself is spacious and very aesthetic, with a wood decor, and an enormous pipe organ front and center. There is ample room between rows to both ensure legroom, and to enable people to pass through without stepping on people’s toes or requiring them to stand. The acoustics are excellent.

    Traditional building a music center

    2019-01

    The National Concert Hall hosts musical performances, mainly in traditional style. Despite its look of age, it is of relatively recent construction. It is certainly a boon for artistic circles in Taipei. The colors of red and gold are traditional Chinese colors. The Concert Hall is similar in appearance to the National Theater across the way. Both are in the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall precinct.

    Chinese architecture

    2018-08

    National Concert Hall is one of the two almost identical Chinese-style buildings in Liberty Square. Similar to the Forbidden Palace, it is a major arts venue in Taipei.

    Beautiful Building

    2017-12

    A really intricate building located in the Chiang Kai-Shek memorial area. This building looks similar to the Theatre building across from the plaza. Nice place to just walk around to look at the architecture if you aren't there for a concert.
