A new vision for the future
The completion of the structure was uncertain until the government decided to fully fund the rest of the construction costs for the half-built concert hall in 2008. The building was given its name on the Day of Icelandic Music on 11th December 2009, prior to which it was called The Reykjavík Concert Hall and Conference Centre (Icelandic: Tónlistar- og ráðstefnuhúsið í Reykjavík). The building is the first purpose-built concert hall in Reykjavík. It houses the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and The Icelandic Opera.
