We own and store back stage a 2016 Yamaha C7X concert grand piano. The piano is tuned prior to each event.
SOUND SYSTEM in the venue.
The venue was designed by an acoustical engineering company, and the acoustics are exceptional. In September 2019 a new sound system was permanently installed, featuring two arrays of Nexo GEO M6 speakers (nine in each array), a Nexo RS18 subwoofer, Nexo processor/amplifier, Yamaha digital console and ancillary equipment.
