Halls and Auditoriums
Arkay Convention Centre
Location: Chennai

Arkay Convention Center (ACC) is an excellent multipurpose hall at the centre of the musically active Luz, Mylapore. It is compact, fully air-conditioned, carpeted with exceptional interiors. ACC is well equipped with good PA system, projector and screen/interactive board, making it suitable for Lec Dem sessions too. ACC is fully sound proof, insulated from external sounds and the whole interior area is treated in such a way, the sound does not get reflected. The stage is attractively designed and capable of absorbing the sound.

These effective measures makes ACC a hall with good acoustics, enhancing the quality of sound with the boom of the hall’s reverberation that makes music beautiful. Good acoustics also give the performer a genuine feedback, so that he can control it for greater expressiveness. The mridangam player's delicate touches allows the rasika to hear the finest details without straining. This so because the quiet hall makes soft sounds more audible, the performer can produce a wider dynamic range. It is a bliss to hear Veena concert in ACC.

Thankfully, all the musicians who have performed here had nice things to say about ACC; so are the rasikas.

About Sabhash - Everything about classical music, dance, drama and a platform for inclusive entertainment

Sabhash.com is the one-stop destination for the latest news and information on the performing arts of India - classical music and dance, theatre, bhajans, discourses, folk performances, and other lesser known art forms. Institutions that revolve around the performing arts have exploded in numbers, and thanks to the Internet which has made information easily accessible, the number of rasikas has grown too. Corporate patronage has played a big part in increasing the world-wide reach of the Indian arts. Sabhash wishes to be a platform for inclusive growth giving an equal opportunity and recognition to not only the main performer but also the artistes who accompany them on stage, and the people who work backstage and play the role of unsung heroes.
