Sennheiser Group and the Shanghai Concert Hall have agreed to terms that officially renames the Shanghai Concert Hall, "Sennheiser Shanghai Concert Hall", effective March 10, 2014.

Sennheiser will also provide regular workshops for the technical team at the concert hall. "It is with pride and honor that Sennheiser joins forces with the prestigious Shanghai Concert Hall to promote the music and sound culture in China." said Marc Vincent, President, Sennheiser Greater China.

This year is the beginning of the second decade following our relocation to this venue. To join hands with Sennheiser, the world's leading audio brand, it in itself provides a lot of possibility for future development for the concert hall. We believe that this cooperation will bring about a huge impact on the development of music culture in Shanghai."
Sennheiser Recording Facility:
Parts of the plans include a commitment to set up a professional, world-class recording studio inside the Shanghai Concert Hall, scheduled for completion in 2015.
