Despite $300 mil, acoustics at the Philadelphia's Verizon Hall acknowledged to be subpar

Six and a half years ago, 300 million smackers were spent on the Verizon Hall, to create a world-class venue for the Philadelphia Orchestra. Peter Dobrin of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the administrators of the hall now acknowledged that the acoustics are awful and that they might have to spend a lot more money to fix things. So, Verizon Hall will probably join Avery Fisher Hall and Davies Hall in the pantheon of very, very expensively corrected music venues.

Even worse, Avery Fisher and Davies were not improved that much - they still remain troubled halls that never lived up to their promise.
