Jones Hall is more than a performance hall. Brilliant planning by the building architects offers unparalleled versatility, enabling Jones Hall to accommodate several art forms. Overhead, 800 hexagons create a moveable marvel that can be raised or lowered to regroup volumes, alter the physical circumstances of a room, and manipulate acoustics. The auditorium can literally shrink from 2,912 seats to 2,300. The ambience of the hall is enhanced with its vibrant red velvet seating, golden teak walls and a sweeping loge that seems to reach for the stage.
The stage offers practically limitless flexibility for a variety of performances. Soaring 81 feet to the grid, the stage area is 120 feet wide and 55 feet deep. Deeper stage effects can be obtained by raising the orchestra pit. The proscenium opening is nearly 32 feet tall and 60 feet wide and this may be brought down to smaller sizes. The 63-ton symphony shell easily stores flush against backstage walls. Additional requirements such as dressing rooms, loading dock, freight elevator and lighting equipment are nearby.
