The Hall was designed for a natural acoustic environment and refining the clarity of the sound was an important goal of the project, especially since the Orchestra's varied modern repertoire called for more acoustical flexibility within the Hall.
A central feature of the Meyerhoff renovation is a new acoustical canopy suspended from the ceiling, which is adjustable for acoustic symphony performances.
The loudspeaker array enables everyone in the hall, from the musicians on the stage to the audience in the last row of the balcony, to hear the spoken word clearly and distinctly.
