Weill Hall, Green Music Center

About

Green Music Center
The Donald and Maureen Green Music Center is a world-class performing arts complex in the heart of Northern California's renowned Wine Country. Located on the campus of Sonoma State University, the Green Music Center consists of multiple performance venues, a music education wing, sprawling outdoor spaces, an on-site restaurant, and much more.  Santa Rosa Symphony is the Resident Orchestra at the Green Music Center.
 
Joan and Sanford I. Weill Hall
The crown jewel of the Green Music Center is undoubtedly the 1,400-seat Joan and Sanford I. Weill Hall which opened in September 2012 and is considered one of the most acoustically superb concert venues in the world.
 
Designed by architect William Rawn, theatre consultant Auerbach Pollock Friedlander, and acoustician Lawrence Kirkegaard, Weill Hall was designed to replicate the intimacy and acoustics of both Vienna’s Musikverein and Symphony Hall in Boston.
 
Weill Hall is modeled after Seiji Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood, including a back wall that can be fully opened onto the beautifully landscaped and terraced Weill Lawn.
 
The 1,400 handcrafted seats within Weill Hall were built by the 200-year-old Fancher Chair Company. Made of European steamed beech wood, the chairs feature an open back designed for acoustic-neutrality whether the seat is occupied or empty.
 
Seating in Weill Hall is divided amongst a raked orchestra floor, second floor choral circle, including a choir loft behind the stage, and the third floor balcony boasting spectacular views of the Sonoma Mountains through large windows on the north and east walls.
 
The variable acoustics of the hall are acheived through the use of motorized fabric banners on the east and west walls. By adjusting these banners, the hall can be fine-tuned for the specific genre of music being performed - from a single vocalist to a full orchestra setting.
