Conversion of a church of national importance into a musical performance venue
Tuesday, March 19, 7:30 pm
Admission only with ticket due to limited space! Free tickets can be obtained at the DAGA conference desk.
This event combines two highlights: We will listen to the internationally renowned Girls' Choir Hanover in the special room acoustics of the Christuskirche Hanover, which was recently conversed into a concert church.There will also be a lecture (in German language) on the special room acoustics concept, given by the acoustic planner of the conversion himself - Vladimir Szynajowski.
The Christuskirche in Hanover was built in 1874 by the architect Conrad Wilhelm Hase as the residence church of George V. It is one of the most famous neo-Gothic buildings in Germany. In 2013, a new concept was developed and the church was converted for choir performances and as a rehearsal center and home for the Hanover Girls' Choir.
The new concept required extensive planning and renovation work in many disciplines. In addition to the room acoustics concept for the different usage profiles (choir hall, rehearsal room, church service), other areas of building physics and the technical building equipment had to be adapted to the new concept as well.
