Wisconsin Lutheran High School Auditorium
Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

Room Acoustics Consultation  

The auditorium of this high school is actually a multi-purpose room. Worship, band and orchestra concerts, drama, lectures, and musical shows are all presented in the room. A pipe organ is installed in a side wall chamber. Noise from the entry lobby transmitted into the auditorium, and some of the original sound absorbing materials at the room’s rear wall had been damaged.

Acoustical improvements include the installation of appropriate amounts and locations of sound absorbing and sound reflective/diffusing side and rear wall features, and sound absorbing materials within the entry halls from the lobby. Movable sound reflective wall and ceiling shells were also added to the stage area.
