We have situation here where symphony orchestra is playing in something called Leisure land. There is a swimming pool and a big  hall with no acoustic to speak of. Some people refuse to go to concerts there because it is not really a great Artistic experience to go there.

I heard rumours that they are going to built something like movie theatre and this will allow to change partitions to make big hall for appropriate concerts. I really don't know if it is true.

Otherwise we have one old piano that can be used for International artists. Often piano had to be brought almost from overseas if the old beaten up Steinway is not available  due to the room being used.
Sorry for telling my own horror stories. I just hope Dutch government has no plans to go this way. I was always looking at beautiful halls on the net to just remind myself.

It is very sad really.
