Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall
The Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall is the jewel of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts plaza and features a magnificent facade of Portuguese limestone and graceful glass wall.
In addition to the Center's own presentations and guest artists, this magnificent concert hall hosts resident companies Pacific Symphony, the Philharmonic Society of Orange County and Pacific Chorale and has hosted names such as Tony Bennett, Beverly Sills, YoYo Ma and the New York City Opera. Jazz, pop, opera and classical music are featured in concert series events.
Through the glass, visitors and patrons can see the dramatic multi-tiered foyer and circular staircase. Once inside, guests can look out and across the Center’s 46,000 square-foot community plaza to the original Segerstrom Hall with its signature sculpture, "Fire Bird," by noted artist Richard Lippold and the imposing steel sculpture "Connector", created by Richard Serra. Soaring above the Spanish granite lobby floor is the ceiling finished in silver leaf and a breathtaking lighting installation titled “Constellation.”
This award-winning piece of architectural jewelry includes faceted Swarovski crystal LED globes and 300 silver lavalieres suspended in graduated lengths that are tipped in illuminated, Baccarat crystal pendants. Internationally acclaimed architect Cesar Pelli designed the structure with impeccable acoustics by Artec Consultants.
