The Norwegian Academy of Music moved into its own premises in Majorstua in 1989, a building with advanced acoustics and technical installations. The house contains a chamber music venue (Levin Hall) with a capacity of up to 120 and a modern Amphi-shaped concert hall (Lindeman Hall) with 365 fixed seats and a stage designed to accommodate a symphony orchestra with choir. See technical information about the two venues.
The Lindeman Hall and Sandvold Hall both have large organs.
The block houses a library, canteen and high-tech rooms including a recording studio, study spaces, teaching and practice rooms. The academy is home to the greatest number of grand pianos anywhere in Norway, a large number of percussion instruments as well as instruments and equipment for jazz and electronic music. A wide range of specialist instruments, period instruments and objects from the academy’s historical instrument collection is on display in the library.
In January 2007 all staff and students at the academy were finally able to move to Majorstua as the new house opened. The annexe contains teaching rooms, a 100-capacity auditorium, staff room, practice rooms etc. The building also boasts special rooms for amplified music.
