Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall stage during the intermission. The stage flooring was replaced in 2007 because the original was dangerously buckling. The original blueprints of the flooring were used to recreate the late 19th c. hardwood maple stage right down to the handmade nails. In this manner the hope was to not alter the acoustics of this magnificent hall. The project was successful. The flooring is very white because the maple was not stained & thus reflects much light.

Have not seen it since the repairs were made. Glad to hear the acoustics are as good as ever.
