Back in Ames in time for field trips to the University’s major performance spaces.  We’re lucky to have a couple of acoustically amazing rooms on campus–the 2700-seat Stephens Auditorium, where the building staff let us wander around for a couple of hours and speak (or sing!) from the stage to hear what a finely tuned space sounds like, and the Martha Ellen Tye Recital Hall, which at 300 seats is less impressive on the inside, but does have a roof that’s part of the tour.  Fun bunch, this..
