The Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall is a performing arts venue in Costa Mesa. The 2,000-seat hall, an estimated $240 million expansion of the Orange County Performing Arts Center, is a delirium-inducing cocktail of scale, architecture and acoustics. The three-tiered hall, which opened last year, was designed with aural pleasure in mind. It boasts an acoustic canopy, reverberation chambers and sound-sponging curtains to deaden certain frequencies from loudspeakers, when they are used. This world-class venue has already hosted renowned entertainers such as Placido Domingo and the American Ballet Theater, and it will likely continue to draw some of the most famous icons of highbrow entertainment for years to come. It’s also the home of the Pacific Symphony run by Carl St. Clair, and always brings in other big orchestras. We’re still waiting, though, for them to restage all of Beethoven’s symphonies the way they did years ago, you know?
