A complete corrective acoustics remodeling program which included reshaping the stage, construction of a new canopy and orchestra risers, installation of permanent reflectors adjacent to the stage, and reconfiguration of the main-floor seating and walls. This $10 million program transformed this 2,900-seat concert hall from one of the five worst in the United States to one of the five best, as rated by the Berlin Philharmonic at the end of a U.S. tour. The San Francisco Symphony has successfully produced opera on this stage, utilizing the orchestra pit and stage-supported scenery.
