The Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, the most iconic building in Dallas, opened in 1989. Designed by world-renowned architect I.M. Pei, and the acoustician was Russell Johnson of Artec Consultants, the building is an optimal space for concerts, recitals, recordings, meetings, receptions, weddings, banquets and special events.
The centerpiece of the Meyerson Symphony Center is the Eugene McDermott Concert Hall, an intimate performance space with seating for 1,838 (or 2,062 seats when utilizing upstage Choral Terrace and Dress Circle Loft seats). Every detail of the concert hall is designed to achieve the highest acoustical quality, with adjustable elements available to tailor the acoustical environment to the performance.
Four acoustic canopies are suspended above the stage and can be raised, lowered or tilted to enhance sound clarity. Selecting canopy heights for each concert is dependent on several factors including the size and location of the performers, the instrumentation, and the style or character of music performed.
The reverberation chamber is a 300,000 cubic foot space, which surrounds the upper perimeter of the shoebox shaped concert hall. Reverb doors may be opened to increase the reverberation decay time or closed to reduce the reverberation. Sound absorbing acoustic curtains are also available within the reverberation chamber and throughout the concert hall on three levels to achieve the desired articulation of sound.
