As you can see on the sides, there are beautiful sculptures and also paintings of composers that helps the ambiance. During performances, there’s no microphone used. Audience could hear a clear voice because of the architectural design of this concert hall.
Across this very hall, you can find your self in a fine art museum — Sophilia Fine Art Center. It’s divided into 4 levels. In first level, you can see European paintings in certain era, like baroque. There’s also European sculpture in the first level. In second level, you can see a lot of Chinese culture, starting from Chinese porcelain that varies through ages to a real war general’s armor. In third level, you can see more of European paintings and there’s also a collection of a very old and delicate watches. In fourth level, you can have an Indonesian culture experience.
