Grieg Hall

The Grieg Hall

The Grieg Hall (Norwegian: Grieghallen) is a 1,500 seat concert hall in Bergen, Norway. It has been the home of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra since the hall's completion in 1978. It hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 1986, and is the host of the annual Norwegian Brass Band Championship competition, which occurs in mid-winter. The hall is named after Bergen-born composer Edvard Grieg, who was music director of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra from 1880 until 1882. The Grieg Hall recording studio is also famous within the black metal community, as several of the most important Norwegian black metal albums were recorded there, with Pytten as sound technician.
