Designed by well-known architect I. M. Pei, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center is ranked among the world’s greatest concert halls, and serves as the permanent home of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Dallas Symphony Chorus. Designed in the European shoebox style, it seats 2,062. It also hold the Lay Family Concert Organ, a 453-pipe instrument that’s considered a masterpiece and serves as the focal point of the concert hall. The architectural aesthetics alone make the venue worth a visit, but the acoustics are also world renowned; reverberation is controlled by 74 concrete doors, each weighing in at 2.5 tons, that can be opened and closed around the top of the hall as needed. Further proving that no detail was left unconsidered, a complicated system of curtains and canopies can be controlled for even more customization and unparalleled sound quality.
