Opened on March 26, 1930 as the Nanking Theatre, the Shanghai Concert Hall (renamed in 1959) looks back on a glamorous past. A national heritage, the Shanghai Concert Hall was the first building in classical European style designed by Chinese architects in Shanghai.

In 2002 the hall was relocated 66 meters southward and raised 3.8 meters. The renovated building reopened on October 1, 2004 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

In the 2005 premiere of the German Culture Week, the NDR Bigband played two impressive gigs in this equally impressive building. And last, but not least: Händel‘s ”Messiah“ was performed here for the first time in China by the Bach Choir Heidelberg and the Bach Soloists Munich.
