Abstract

A three-year study of stage acoustics for symphony orchestras in concert halls has recently been completed. The main goal of the project was to find what acoustic conditions are preferred by orchestral musicians and what objective characteristics best correspond with their views. The study involved both subjective and objective investigations. The subjective data was collected from two questionnaire studies with musicians. The objective study involved three separate types of study: measurements on real concert hall stages, measurements in scale models and investigations using computer simulation models.
