The Wuxi Symphony Hall in Xinwu district includes a 1,500-seat Wuxi Symphony Hall, a 500-seat multipurpose concert hall, an art exchange center, and a performing arts and business center.
The Wuxi Symphony Hall is the most eye-catching piece of architecture. The glass-walled ball-shaped building looks like a rising moon next to Taihu Lake when it lights up at night.
