AbstractThe most important characteristic of any concert hall must be the sound that it delivers to the listener. While the acoustics of a hall are unlikely to make a good orchestra sound bad, a well designed auditorium can provide a truly memorable experience. Yet the Boston Symphony Hall, which opened in 1900, was the first to be designed with the science of acoustics in mind.
