CSDA is providing acoustical consulting services for Grossmont College’s new 350-seat proscenium multipurpose theater, with drama, dance, and music components. The theater is also planned to be used as a community resource, for local and touring theater. Amplified music performances will include musicals, jazz bands, Afro Cuban ensembles, and rock ensembles.
Additional programmed spaces are the lobby, box office, gallery, offices, meeting room, makeup/classroom, dressing rooms, and green room. The acoustical design will incorporate an adjustable drapery system to tune the theater for the various uses. A series of overhead reflectors will direct useful sound reflections to the main level and balcony seating areas.
