cité de la musique geneva
A wonderful opportunity for Geneva and its inhabitants, the Cité de la Musique will bring together the professional musicians of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (OSR) along with 500 students from the Haute école de musique (HEM) under one roof.
A place for teaching, creativity, concerts and educational activities, it will allow the region's cultural players and all Genevans to come together around music and the arts. La Cité will also provide a new space to meet with friends and relax, with its 2 restaurants, library, exhibition space and access to a new public park.
Born from the desire to give as many people as possible access to music, as well as the urgent necessity to respond to the needs of both institutions, the Cité de la Musique will be an inspiring, open place where future challenges can be faced. In particular, it will include:
Work and rehearsal rooms for students
Places to meet with friends and relax (restaurant, cafeteria, library, etc.)
Concert hall with 1,580 seats
Large adjustable studio with 390 seats
100-seat 'blackbox' dedicated to experimental and electroacoustic music
"Making music more accessible and training the next generation of professional musicians"
The construction of the Cité de la Musique will allow everyone living in Geneva to enjoy a one-hectare wooded park, currently the property of the United Nations and closed to the public. Everyone will have access this green lung, which will be completely redesigned for walking and relaxation.
