Abstract

The purpose of this study was to add to the database of stage acoustics measurements proposed by Gade (1989) and Naylor (1988). Some of the results are shown. A fundamental conflict in stage acoustics is the performer's need to hear both herself and her colleagues. In a hall where an orchestra was provided with significant control of the stage acoustics, the authors measurements indicate that these conflicting requirements were superseded by the listener's desire for greater reverberance
