Experience acoustics you’ll never forget!
For over twenty years, the Domaine Forget de Charlevoix Concert Hall has been a top destination for recording music at its finest. Hundreds of classical music albums have been recorded here, thanks to the purity of the silence and the flexibility of the acoustic parameters that can be adjusted according to any artists' wishes. The absence of large city centers, airports and construction sites ensures an environment virtually free of noise pollution. Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, the breathtaking DFC site makes for an exceptional working environment and playground for creativity.
The acoustic properties of Concert Hall are so exceptional that several Quebec and U.S. record labels frequently use it to capture music at its most natural. To date, the Concert Hall has played host to over 140 recording sessions by major symphony orchestras, early music ensembles, piano-voice duos, and many others.
Designed by New York firm Artec, the Concert Hall keeps outside noise at bay with its fully soundproofed mechanical rooms and a structure built from a single block of concrete. Under these conditions, the quality of the silence yields recordings of the very highest fidelity. Our quest for perfection is such that we can easily attain levels of 60 decibels and beyond.
