Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas

Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas (must see)

The Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center is a spectacular facility that was designed to showcase the musical arts. It does host other functions as well, though, which are both private and public in nature, but its acoustics makes it a must for any music aficionado. The shape of the concert hall was determined, and then an architect was hired to make that shape work with the rest of the facility.

The design of the building was then entrusted to I. M. Pei who worked in tandem with Artec Acoustic Consultants to produce a building that was pleasing to all the senses. The foyer is open and filled with light. It has an aesthetically pleasing curving shape to facilitate traffic flow. There are 211 glass panels that make up the front façade and none of the panels are alike.

The acoustics of the concert hall are phenomenal. There are 74 doors around the concert chamber that can change according to how much reverberation is needed. There are also curtains that will help prevent noise distortion. Additionally, there are 42 tons of curtains around the top of the stage that can be set to make the musical notes arrive to the audience as pure and sweet as possible.

There is also a pipe organ that is housed here. The music coming from the Lay Family Concert Organ is so incredible, especially in this magnificent facility. The facility is located at 2310 Flora Street. There is parking available at several different lots for $10 per event, and there is also valet parking for $11. Be sure to check the concert schedule when in town and do not miss the opportunity to check out this incredible venue.
