A church by another name.
- The Concert Hall has the largest auditorium in the Opera House, seating 2,700 in the round. It is the venue for a wide variety of performances: opera, dance and choral concerts, symphony, chamber, popular and jazz music, and dance and folk entertainment. It has a modern interior, using Australian timbers, with clear sightlines. Eighteen adjustable, doughnut-shaped, acrylic rings hang from the ceiling, which reflect the sound back to the orchestra for acoustic purposes. The Concert Hall Grand Organ was Australian designed and built, and is the large mechanical tracker action organ in Australia with 10,000 pipes and six keyboards.
