Help us tune the new recital hall!

New School of Music recital hall

We need 400 people to help us tune the School of Music's new recital hall on October 30 and 31! That's right—400 people to sit quietly in a seat while the acousticians measure and evaluate the sound of various instruments and ensembles.


You may bring a book, a tablet, a magazine, your silenced phone and/or a laptop, or just sit quietly and listen to the music as the musicians from the school play excerpts—perhaps multiple times—while acoustical banners are raised and lowered to determine the best placement for that particular type of performance.
