It’s been open since January, 2022, but we want to see it now.
Ten years in the making, Orlando finally has a world-class concert venue. Steinmetz Hall is the new 1,700-seat acoustic theater at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
For acoustic geeks, the hall boasts an N1 sound rating with an ambient noise level of 19dB, making it one of the quietest concert halls in the world.
Plus, acoustics can be adjusted to suit the nature of a performance with retractable sound barriers.
In addition, the hall is multi-form. Each row of orchestra seating is on independent lifts. The seats may be either on top of the lift or stowed below. The hall can be configured with a flat floor for a ballroom or banquet event. The stage depth is adjustable. And an orchestra pit can be created by lowering the first several lifts.
Finally, a six-story unit called the cassette can move up and downstage on tracks to surround the stage with seating for an immersive concert configuration.
Visitors can attend ten productions and see ten different configurations of Steinmetz Hall. You could very well achieve that goal by 2023. The space has a full and varied slate of performances and productions on its schedule.
It’s like a concert hall Transformer and we are here for it.
