L’Auditori, founded in March 1999, is Barcelona's most recently created music venue and the home of the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra , the Barcelona Symphony Bandand theMuseu de la Música. L’Auditori is a national institution which aims to bring Catalonia and Barcelona worldwide recognition through its ongoing, inclusive musical activities. These include an extensive social programme with an educational service aimed at audiences of all types, helping to make culture accessible to all under the leadership of the Apropa Cultura programme.

Since December 2007, l’Auditori has been part of the European Concert Hall Organization (ECHO), the most prestigious association of auditoriums in Europe, and was the first concert hall in Spain to become a member.

The same complex houses the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya and the Museu de la Música. L'Auditori is thus a focal point for the dissemination of music in Barcelona and education and research in this field.

L'Auditori is a modern building with premises covering 42,000 square metres. Designed by the architect Rafael Moneo, it was officially opened on 22 March 1999. It is situated at the heart of the new area of urban development in Plaça de les Glòries, where the city's three widest and longest avenues (Diagonal, Gran Via and Meridiana) converge. It is near the city's historic centre, the Eixample, the Teatre Nacional, the Glòries complex, the point where Diagonal reaches the sea, district 22 and the Forum area.
