School of Music seeks volunteers to help tune new recital hall

October 19, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State's School of Music needs 400 people to help tune the new recital hall on Oct. 30 and 31. That's right — 400 people to sit quietly in a seat while the acousticians measure and evaluate the sound of various instruments and ensembles.


You may bring a book, a tablet, a magazine, your silenced phone and/or a laptop, or just sit quietly and listen to the music as the musicians from the school play excerpts — perhaps multiple times — while acoustical banners are raised and lowered to determine the best placement for that particular type of performance.
