Back by popular demand: sponsored webinar on acoustics for orchestras during pandemic

Posted on: November 3, 2020

On Wednesday, November 4, the League of American Orchestras will present “Balancing Acoustics and Physical Distancing as Orchestras Return to Their Halls,” a sponsored webinar—free to League members—in which Robin Glosemeyer Petrone and Scott D. Pfeiffer of Threshold Acoustics LLC will discuss how to balance the need for safe spaces for performers and audiences with the unique acoustics of orchestras. Building on the success of the League’s October 7 webinar covering the same topic, this live, 60-minute webinar, developed and sponsored by Threshold Acoustics LLC, will address how best to ensure that concerts have the expected breadth and fullness of sound for distanced audiences and musicians. The webinar will also examine acoustic needs for orchestras that perform simultaneously for in-person and virtual audiences. Expert acousticians will address these challenges and discuss potential scenarios and solutions to enable ensembles to optimize acoustics as they return to live performance. “Balancing Acoustics and Physical Distancing as Orchestras Return to Their Halls” takes place on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, 3 p.m. Eastern/12 p.m. Pacific and is free for League members.
