Built in 1987, the National Chiang Kai-Shek Cultural Center at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall are the first national-level cultural venues in Taiwan. In addition to hosting major performances, the two major buildings of the center—the National Theater and National Concert Hall—are major Taipei landmarks. The two buildings are designed in a traditional Chinese palace style, with distinctive yellow tiled roofs and red pillars adding to their stately elegance.

In addition to enjoying world-class musical, dance and theater performances, center visitors can also tour the cultural gallery and performing arts library. The center also offers regular guided tours for a more in-depth look at the world of performance arts in Taipei.

    Center for classical music in Taipei


    I was in the Concert Hall during a performance today. Movement was restricted so as not to interfere with the recital. The exterior of the Concert Hall is a brilliant combination of gold and red, the colors associated in Chinese culture with good fortune. The interior is sumptuous. In addition to concerts, the hall hosts stores selling musical scores and other music-related items. The Concert Hall is in the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall precinct, across from the National Theater.

    Strongly Recommend!


    Strongly recommend people who love art and culture to visit this place when traveling in Taipei! I went to the debut of Michael Korstick in Taipei (he performed a series of songs by Liszt) and was very impressed by his performance. The staff at the venue were very nice, and the ticket is so unbelievably cheap compare with NYC for similar level of performance.

    A Terrific Concert Venue


    I had the good fortune to attend a concert of the Formosa Singers at the National Concert Hall. The performance was wonderful, but this review is about the concert hall itself. Other reviewers have written about the exterior of the building. Inside, in addition to the concert hall itself, there are two restaurants, a very nice gift shop, and a shop that has something to do with violins. The hall itself is spacious and very aesthetic, with a wood decor, and an enormous pipe organ front and center. There is ample room between rows to both ensure legroom, and to enable people to pass through without stepping on people’s toes or requiring them to stand. The acoustics are excellent.

    Traditional building a music center


    The National Concert Hall hosts musical performances, mainly in traditional style. Despite its look of age, it is of relatively recent construction. It is certainly a boon for artistic circles in Taipei. The colors of red and gold are traditional Chinese colors. The Concert Hall is similar in appearance to the National Theater across the way. Both are in the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall precinct.
