Under New Management

27 April 2015

As of 1 January 2015 the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO) became the new venue manager of the Perth Concert Hall.

Perth Theatre Trust Chair Peter Blaxell said as part of the new venue management arrangement, Perth Theatre Trust would lease the Perth Concert Hall from the City of Perth for 12 months as of 1 January 2015.

"Under this new agreement between Perth Theatre Trust and WASO, the Trust holds the lease, while WASO is responsible for the venue management and activation of the Perth Concert Hall in 2015," he said.

A separate not for profit entity, WA Venues and Events Pty Ltd, has been established as the signatory to the agreement with the State Government, operating as a sister company of WASO Pty Ltd. WASO Chairman Janet Holmes à Court AC said the new management would provide opportunities to activate the venue and bring in new hirers and new audiences.
