Set to open January 11th the new and impressively designed Bing Concert Hall in San Francisco is heralded as a sight to behold. Built on campus at Stanford University, the concert hall comes with an impressive suite of amenities including beautiful architecture by renowned designer Olcott. The new hall's inaugural season has already attracted several big names.
I can’t wait to hear La Mer in Stanford University’s bold new Bing Concert Hall — a sweeping, circular space with giant convex “sails” and wavy, linear forms that were acoustically designed to scatter the sound waves rolling around this dynamic yet intimate 850-seat room.
Even the backs of the beech-wood seats — clustered in curved terraces ringing the pale-yellow cedar stage where everyone from Yo-Yo Ma to Los Lobos will perform during the inaugural season starting Jan. 11 — form an undulating line.
