The Board of Directors of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has hired Chicago-based Kirkegaard Associates as the acoustics consultants for the new Atlanta Symphony Center.

"The new concert hall is to be a space that brings audience and performers together in a close, shared experience of music and music-making," commented Larry Kirkegaard, president and principal consultant of Kirkegaard Associates. "[The Atlanta Symphony Center is] one that can be extraordinarily flexible in design to accomodate the level of inventiveness that the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra desires for its performances, and will support the full symphonic and choral repertoire as well as yet unimagined music and performance needs for the future."

The vision for the new 2,000-seat concert hall was created by a comprehensive tour of existing concert facilities around the world taken by Kirkegaard Associates and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra representatives. "The process of listening, talking with orchestra members, management representatives and patrons in these venues was invaluable in helping to define a sound, feel and ambience that will be uniquely Atlanta's own," said Kirkegaard.

"Excellence of sound is the top priority for the new hall," said Allison Vulgamore, president of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
