Welcome to the Concert Hall Acoustics website!
This website has been created to introduce, enlighten, and entertain
you on the subject of concert hall acoustics.
Here is a brief description of what this site has to offer:
- Foundations: This section introduces the fundamentals of room
acoustics, creating a foundation for the rest of the concepts discussed
in this site. The history of concert hall acoustics is also presented.
- Discussion: In this section, we will explore important concepts
in concert hall design as well as current acoustical qualities and how
one objectively measures these in a performing arts space. Various interactive
elements are utilized, including reverberation time calculators, animation,
and sound clips.

web pages are listed here. Recently added is the Acoustical
Society of America Tutorial on Architectural Acoustics from
