LED light fixtures and Stage Curtains for the Kolarac Concert Hall

Kolarac's Foundation was established by Ilija Milosavljevic Kolarac, a merchant who bequeathed all his property to the Serbian people in order to spread science and culture. Its mission is to present and promote culture and art, science and education.

  • Client: The Kolarac Concert Hall
  • Date of project: 2020

Its Great Hall, the most impressive part of the endowment, was ceremoniously opened on February 4, 1932 with a concert by the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s been known as the most acoustic hall for musical performances in the capital and also one of such in the whole of Europe.


About the project


Considering the Great Hall being visioned as a modern and technologically well-equipped concert hall, the authorities from the Foundation published a tender for the procurement and installation of lighting system for the Great Hall at the end of 2019. Our company participated in the tender and won the opportunity to deliver and install a ceremonial stage curtain and LED lighting system of the latest generation.


Ceremonial stage curtain


We delivered a two-parts Hamlet, stage curtain consisted of two parts with dimensions of 500x560 cm and weight 450 g/m². This burgundy curtain is pleated, features rings and carabiners for hanging on the existing rail system and a pocket on the bottom for retracting the chain. The curtain also has the appropriate fireproof certificate.

The lighting system consists of Chauvet Ovation series LED lighting fixtures characterized by high performance LED optical system. Therefore, a perfectly soft and even field of light is achieved.

Ovation light fixtures come with different light sources, from warm white to full color. They are silent in operation and equipped with high CRI.

Four quality framing shutters make it simple to control light beam according to the wishes of the light designer.

Fresnel spotlights with shutters, Chauvet OVATION F-265WW generate warm white light power of 1 LED (WW) x 230 W, have motorized zoom (27° to 68°) and CRI 96. They are DMX are controlled and support both RDM and PWM. It is an adequate replacement for the halogen 2 kW fresnel spotlight.

The complete lighting system is connected with quality Sommer Cable AES / EBU DMX cables and Hicon connectors.
