Why are the ceilings of concert halls curved?

Answer

Concert halls are very big, so the sound might not reach every corner of the hall.

So, ceilings of concert halls are made curved so that after reflecting, it reaches all parts of the hall.

 

A curved ceiling acts as a large concave soundboard and reflects sound down onto the audience sitting in the hall.
