Avery Fisher Hall
The hall was built in 1962 and originally named Philharmonic Hall. It was renamed after Avery Fisher, a member of the Philharmonic board of directors, following his US$10.5 million donation to the orchestra in 1973.
The hall's architecture was designed by Max Abramovitz.
The hall's interior was acoustically designed by Leo L. Beranek . The hall was originally derided for its poor acoustics. A series of interior renovations throughout the 70s helped improve the sound, but Avery Fisher Hall remains acoustically challenged to this day.
