By far the best venue in Mexico City, and one of the very best in all of the Americas, is the Sala Nezahualcoyotl, on the campus of Mexico's National University (UNAM). The physical setting, next to ancient lava flows, is spectacular. But the absolute proof of this as one of the finest concert halls in the world is found inside. The sight is stunning and the sound is superb. This is the permanent home of the Orquesta




Filarmonica de la UNAM, and the Sala Neza (as it is sometimes called) hosts the Orquesta Sinfonica de Mineria during the summer months.  Musicians count themselves extremely fortunate to play here. The Sala Nezahualcóyotl features a striking architectural design that sets it apart from many other modern concert halls. The acoustical design was inspired by the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and




so a narrow band of seats extends to the sides and rear of the orchestra platform. As in the Concertgebouw, these seats are audience seating when they are not needed for choral performances. The Hall was shaped and built to ensure that it would have a very resonant acoustic.An extensive acoustical canopy over the stage ensures that this resonance is balanced by clarity.
