Classical music is often featured and performed by an international ensemble of musicians. The intimate hall seats only 300, and the acoustics are impeccable.

Basking in perpetual shimmer, the phenomenal facade of the Harpa concert hall is a fine tribute to Iceland's unique terrain. The concert hall comprises of two large rectangular structures that stand firmly on the Reykjavik harbor, swathed in piece after piece of colored glass.

This modern structure holds four concert halls, the largest of which seats as many as 1800 spectators. It is also home to lavish conference rooms and a stunning exhibition space. Every year, the Harpa comes alive with lilting melodies of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Icelandic Opera.
