It is with most grateful heart to GOD that I stand before you to witness together the dedication of this music hall, when we offer to God today. The long time dream finally becomes true, when we complete the construction of the concert hall.
One simple thought touched my mind, and as what we know,
"A good content needs a good container". When we relate these saying to a music life, it definitely matches well. A good music needs a great music hall.
With wonderful guidance and the exceeding grace from HIM,
I hereby present the AULA SIMFONIA JAKARTA Concert Hall to all musicians, from music creators to music listeners. We wish that this hall will be a good home for the music lover in Indonesia, especially for the people in Jakarta, capital of Indonesia. Some quality concerts will be performed to you regularly and will educate our younger generation the heritage of excellent music of the past.
You are all warmly welcome to our concerts. Thank you.
Dr. Stephen Tong
(Artistic Director and Principal Conductor)
