The Union Concert Hall, Odessa is a public concert hall in Odessa, Ukraine built by the Mutual Association of Jewish clerks (Russian: Дом концертного зала Унион).

History[edit]

It was designed by architects F. A. Troupyansky and A. R. Reyhenberg in 1901–1902. In 1899 David Tarnopol, head of the Society (1894–1905), decided to construct a more capacious building for the Association. In the same year he purchased a large plot of land on the corner of Trinity and Alexander street.

The project involved the construction of a building with rooms for classrooms, libraries, reading rooms and a concert hall. On 8 September 1902 the structure was consecrated.

The cost of construction was 222,173,134 rubles, while the value of domestic equipment was 9267.97 rubles.

Performances[edit]

Composer Alexander Scriabin performed from 6–9 December 1911. At a literary evening on March 19, 1925 poets Svetlov M., M. Hungry and writer Yugov A. appeared.
