This concert hall stands as an interesting reminder of sparse 1970s design. For that reason it is worth a visit, but in terms of musical acoustics E.J. Thomas is a disaster (the Akron Symphony has had to introduce discreet electronic sound enhancement to compensate). You cant build a hall with concrete and wire mesh and expect it to reflect sound well the old guys knew what they were doing with wood planking and correct shapes. Interestingly, when they want to close the top balcony, the ceiling can be lowered!
