Acoustics design for full range of improvements for the 2,900-seat historic home of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Opera Company of Philadelphia. The project provided backstage improvements, improved seating, a new stage floor, a new orchestra pit, and new audio system. A taller, heavier new orchestra shell dramatically improved concert acoustics. Original design studies included an expansion of reverberant volume and new stage house.
