19 January 2011, New York, NY – Carnegie Hall shared design renderings of its Studio Towers Renovation Project, a comprehensive undertaking that will create new inspirational spaces for music education on the building’s upper floors and fully refurbish backstage areas. Twenty-four new music rooms will be added to the building – including practice rooms, teaching studios, and medium and large ensemble rooms. The total backstage area supporting Carnegie Hall’s performance activities will be doubled from three to six floors, creating a larger and more modernized space to support the wide variety of production work undertaken at Carnegie Hall. Kirkegaard Associates is providing consulting services for room acoustics, sound isolation, noise and vibration control, and audiovisual systems on the project.
