Ninety years after the Warner opened; the theater has now come back to life as the ‘historic’, modern, state-of-the-art Bradley Symphony Center.
The Center’s acoustical renovation was designed to meet the acoustically ‘coherent’ symphony performances, while also accommodating touring shows and other stage performances.
The intent was to consistently reach every seat with sound that works within the acoustical envelope,” per Akustiks.
The SCW900 Series interior windows contribute a key element to the experience, by permitting the production technicians inside the control room to work and interact without interfering with the on-stage performances.
