Philharmonie de Paris
Inaugurated in 2015, the new building of the Philharmonie de Paris was the latest addition to the Cité de la Musique, a Parisian music complex composed of several concert halls, a Music Museum, rehearsal rooms for orchestras, and a multimedia library.
Situated in the Parc de la Villette and designed by celebrated French architect Jean Nouvel, the venue mainly hosts symphony concerts, as well as some jazz and world music.
Of the 5 resident ensembles at the Philharmoine, the Orchestre de Paris is the biggest. It is France’s largest symphonic ensemble, with 119 members. In 2017, this world-famous orchestra celebrated its 50th anniversary by moving to the Philharmonie’s Grande Salle and exploiting its full acoustic potential.
