a first look at the nac\'s new and improved southam hall
This will change.
On Friday, the National Arts Center announced a new arrangement in the \"red\" Hall, which will see the end of the \"mainland seat.
\"Instead, the main floor of the hall will be divided into four seating areas --
Three of the old orchestras, a terrace at the back, starting with the previous T row
This means brass rails, shorter rows and more seating.
There will be a passage through the aisle in the R row, which will run the entire width of the hall.
There will be new seats on the upper floors, and there will be more seats for customers in wheelchairs.
This also means 250 fewer seats in the lobby.
From up to 2,331-
However, in order to make the experience more enjoyable, the American Taiwan is willing to make sacrifices, which may mean more selling.
This is not expected to mean a loss of ticket revenue.
In fact, Rosemary Thompson, director of communications at Inter-American Taiwan, said
The center is under construction, and this year\'s subscription season is actually about two cents more than last year.
American National Airlines typically earn about $10 million a year.
The main tenants of the South-South Hall of the orchestra perform about 50 concerts a year.
However, there are often other programs in the hall, such as gifts from American Taiwan and dance from American Taiwan.
In general, there are about 1,300 performances a season in four spaces in the American platform.
Over time, Thompson said, the center will begin to \"premium\" the new central aisle seats \".
At the same time, your income from your seat at Southam HallCampaign will be used to support the activities of the American National Taiwan around performance, creation and education.
Thompson said the Ottawa public was curious about what the new South-South Hall would look like at the start of Thursday\'s season (Oct. 6)

Subscriber Ken McKinley has been in the center of death in South Hall for more than ten years.
He is an enthusiastic supporter of change.
Not that he didn\'t like the old space, but that he agreed that it was time to upgrade.
\"The Old Hall is like an old pair of slippers.
These are like great dancing shoes.
But there are still some old things there.
More comfortable seats and more legroom.
On Sunday, about 2,000 people will test the driving space during the \"Official opening\" of the hall.
\"Another change that customers will notice is that tickets will now be at the top of the South-South Hall, taking tickets in front of the new double door --
This will block any environmental noise and sunlight

There will be wood in the Hall-lots of it.

Don\'t worry, there is still some evidence of the famous CSR red carpet on the edge of the hall. The $5-
After three months of work, the million Southan transformation announced on Friday morning was part of $0. 114 billion.
Annual renovation of the internal operations of halls and centers funded by the federal free government.
This was also done at the time of the update on the outside of Nanqi Elkin Street, which was provided by the former Conservative regime for $0. 11 billion.
All of this occurred on the occasion that the committee of American States was preparing to celebrate the country\'s 150 year old on 2017 and to celebrate its 50 th birthday two years later.
These changes should \"enliven\" the sound in the hall as it pops out of the wood.
National television used a company in Chicago to study the right acoustics.
Tuning is about resonance, experts say.
The South-South Hall was designed in the context of an art rather than a science.
For about a week, those who used the hall as a work space have been \"adjusting the Hall \".
NACO is mainly involved.
Alexander Shelley, music director, says the work done has changed dramatically.
Before the renovation, \"it\'s kind of like nude ballet . . . . . . Nowhere to hide.
Now it allows for errors.
The hall itself reflects to the musicians the voice that allows for more intimacy, said Cathy Levy, head of Inter-American dance, which is very important for dancers and musicians.
\"A good hall can handle a mistake,\" Shelley said . \".
\"It makes the sound bloom.
It allows hard edges in a good way.
\"He believes that when the new hall is finally completed in 2018, the audience will eventually hear the voice of NACO as it is to be heard.
He said the voice had accounted for half of this season.
This summer\'s job is the first half of two summers. and more —
Update on the interior of American Taiwan.
Phase 1: new seats, new floors, new sound consoles and other sound systems work.
Phase 2: new sound and lighting and installation of new concert housing.
The new seats are burgundy red, ranging from 19 to 21 inch.
The change is to provide a better view and a more comfortable environment, said Dave McCuaig, program manager for national television. (
The new restroom should also be helpful. )
\"A lot of people don\'t believe we can get the job done in three months this summer, but we\'re here,\" McCuaig said on Friday . \".
This summer, the committee of American States donated old seats to various organizations.
Some ended up performing at Perth\'s studio theater, Woodward High School, and Astor theater in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.
