|Design and construction|
The hall is named after Bergen-born composer Edvard Grieg, who was music director of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra from 1880 until 1882. It has been the home of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra since the hall's completion in 1978. It was designed by the Danish architect Knud Munk.
The hall is used each year for a series of concerts, ballet and opera performances. It hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 1986, and is the host of the annual Norwegian Brass Band Championship competition, which occurs in mid-winter. The Grieg Hall recording studio is also famous within the black metal community, as several of the more popular Norwegian black metal albums were recorded there, with Pytten as sound technician.
