The design team was particularly harmonious throughout the project and I enjoyed working with Bob Essert and Anne Minors whose clear advice and obvious expertise gave confidence to the whole process.
The result has been a beautiful Concert Hall with an acoustic that receives universal praise from all who experience it. The seat layout provides the connection between performer and audience that is so important in today’s performance practice.
All performers find the acoustic feedback to be very supportive, and in every part of the auditorium, the sight lines and audience experience could not be better. It is possible to hear a pin drop at any seat.
I very warmly recommend both Anne Minors and Bob Essert, and their respective teams, as acknowledged experts in their fields who have been a privilege to work with and who have delivered one of the most successful small concert halls in the United Kingdom and beyond.
