History

The 1,003-seat Pick-Staiger Concert Hall (1975) hosts major orchestral, band, and choral performances. Construction was made possible by gifts from Albert Pick Jr. and Charles G. Staiger. The hall was dedicated in honor of Corinne Frada Pick, Pick's wife, and in memory of Pauline Pick Staiger, his sister and Staiger's late wife. Designed by Edward Dart of Loebl, Schlossman, Dart & Hackl, the building is executed primarily in precast concrete and glass. The auditorium, with its sound-reflecting system of 30 plastic dishes, is known for its excellent acoustics.
