Capital Renovation Progress
Summer 2015 Construction Dramatically Improves Theatre
Acoustics for 2015 Performing Arts Season
The Whiting-Turner construction team installed 30-foot Diva® acoustic shell ceiling panels that meet the existing shell towers (part of last year’s major theatre modernization) to complete the acoustic shell. With the shell complete, the theatre sound is dramatically enhanced, allowing greater projection of sound into the audience and helping performers hear better which makes them perform better! As the performance sound moves out to the audience instead of getting “lost” within and above the stage, it becomes more defined and distinct. Patrons will hear more elements in the music than ever before at Maryland Hall!
