September 28, 2013 at Memorial Hall 83 Court Street Plymouth, Ma., in support of adults with developmental disabilities, featuring the James Montgomery Band, Tony V, and David Hull. Tickets are twenty dollars.
Experience Memorial Hall in Plymouth Ma. where they have not always been promoting entertainment through inviting in outsiders from the modern world of musicians. The VFW has a room in the hall and there is an American Legion History room housed in the beautiful Memorial Hall of Plymouth which was built in the early 1920's. Memorial Hall is a place that the residents of Plymouth know well for providing a home to great family entertainment as well as hosting local school musicians for band concerts, and High School Graduation ceremonies. However, the Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra has their home there as well. Secrets of acoustical design apparent in the early 1900's allow for music in the hall to sound wonderful, as the audience enjoys intimacy and the comfort of home (Memorial Hall is located in America's hometown). The design was not an engineering project from acoustical experience in architecture, but nevertheless fullness of sound is reflected from off of the round ceiling. The functional design of Memorial Hall is for music not drama, as the hall is currently without the necessary modern age draperies typically added for clarification of speech. Seating is the perfect capacity for good symphony acoustics. Architectural woodwork in the hall focused on reverberation from wood with acoustical designs in the hall that created a potential performing arts center. Over the years the town has worked to maintain the aesthetics, the comfort, and acoustics of the hall. Memorial Hall was built during a time period when architecture was known to upgrade standards design through harmony of line color and proportion with minimum operating expense.* Memorial Hall seats guests comfortably, As it was architecturally designed for comfort and acoustics. When a professional musician appears there and brings along their state of the art electronic equipment designed to create sound, the whole place becomes a mix of the old and new. Imagine the structure from an historical age of architect with Victorian grace including balcony seating and hand rubbed wood and the new sound techniques only today's musicians can tap. The hall was built for harmony that the human ear was to hear through music. While the distinct sound of a single voice speaking there may become inaudible, the sound of musical instruments played solo or together is only heard in such a beautiful classical hall as this which is something to remember - long live Memorial Hall. Any musician will love to have the experience of playing here. The sound is worth experiencing. Music fans in the South of Boston area enjoy The Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis and The South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset which are outdoor venues in the sumer-time with similar seating capacity to Memorial Hall. The folks in the area would love to experience hearing the sounds of more musicians during the long wintry months at an indoor hall made for listening. Hopefully, in the future more high caliber musical groups will visit Plymouth, Ma. as Memorial Hall becomes discovered through welcoming talented musicians.
