Akustiks provided the acoustical and audio/video design for a new 1,100-seat “shoebox” style concert hall to replace the 300-seat McKnight Theatre. The new Concert Hall was designed to showcase small ensembles, including The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. The hall is supported with a full service recording facility with digital infrastructure that can be used as a remote recording site or a live recording studio. The Concert Hall opened to rave reviews in 2015.
