Curtis Institute of Music Grand Opening of Lenfest Hall
Lenfest Hall doubles the size of the Curtis campus. Designed by renowned Philadelphia architects Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates, the building includes: Gould Rehearsal Hall, 32 additional studios, dorms for half the student body, and dining facilities.
The building is named in honor of Curtis Board Chairman H. F. "Gerry" Lenfest and Curtis Overseer Marguerite Lenfest. The building targets LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) at the gold level, and is integrated well into the historic facades on the block.
Clear Sound production crew was on site at the grand opening of the Curtis Institute of Music’s new Lenfest Hall providing microphones, audio control, amplifiers, speakers and power distribution for the ribbon cutting ceremony and concert. The beautiful tent covered attendees and also sheltered our production equipment from the inclimate weather, resulting in a beautiful event despite the storm.

Each year, all over the country, more than 300,000 people get together with friends, family and co-workers for the MS Walk sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Walks raise money for research, provide services to those affected by MS and to raise awareness. And every year, in Philadelphia, Clear Sound is there to provide audio support for the event.
The Griffin Complex at Gwynedd Mercy University is home to the Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Volleyball teams. The Complex hosted exciting competitions and distinguished graduations, but the attendees had a hard time hearing what was happening.
With a history dating back to ancient China, the Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Festival meets every fall for a day of fun and competition on the Schuylkill River. Teams of paddlers, each with a steersperson and drummer, race for glory in this regional event.
Intimate, natural-sounding dialogue in a sold-out theater. Crisp, intelligible announcements in a packed stadium. Exhilarating lights and music at an outdoor summer festival. A stirring sermon reaching every corner of a cavernous church.
Sounds like the work of Clear Sound - the Delaware Valley's best full-service audio, video and lighting company.
