Academy of Music (Philadelphia). For many decades, Philadelphia regarded the Academy as having excellent acoustics that were wrongly attributed to a circular brick chamber under the floor of the auditorium. Unfortunately, this device was ineffective as little sound could pass through.
The Academy of Music in Philadelphia is a beautiful, historic, charming building with wholly unsuitable acoustics for orchestra. The dry, unreverberant acoustics results from the roughly 2,900 audience members, who completely surround the volume of the auditorium, soaking up sound as they si. The Academy was built as an opera house which typically has a lower reverberation than a concert hall, the venue's primary use for many years.
