Weber Music Hall, c. 2002

The Weber Music Hall opened in October 2002. It was designed by world-renown architect Cesar Pelli and was built at the cost of $9.2 million. It is home to 150 students majoring in music and is also used by more than 1,200 undergraduates who participate in music courses each year.

This intimate 350-seat concert venue has over 250,000 cubic feet of volume in a "sea shell like" shape, making for rich bass sounds, the sound of a much larger space. Changeable acoustics provided by 5,000 sq. ft. of pleated drapery and 48 mid/bass traps provide not only one but several of the better acoustics you will ever hear. No parallel surfaces and multi-band absorption propagate rich, natural reverbs from 1.25 to 3 seconds. Very sophisticated sound isolating techniques make for a noise floor of only 12 db. Yes, you can hear a pin drop!!
