There was a tour of the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Hall, renowned for its acoustics and beauty alike. It and the Ozawa Hall in Tanglewood, MA are the only two concert halls in the country with large "barn doors" for summer concerts, increasing the potential audience by a factor of 10. Mr. Nikolov discussed their newly-installed PA system which delivers high-quality audio to the outdoors and indoors alike. He performed on their Steinway piano (formerly owned by Lang Lang), while attendees walked around the hall and outdoors to evaluate the sound reinforcement as well as the acoustic treatment installed by Kierkegaard Associates.
