Found out we will be voting on building our long awaiting PAC in the spring. I would love to hear what venues at the HS level in which you have enjoyed performing. What venues have an amazing set up (band hall/choir/black box/auditorium) layout that just made sense. What venues you thought just made the ensembles/performers sound awesome! Any and all recommendations would be welcome!

Odessa High School has a FABULOUS set up. Bill Harden at Hardin Simmons was key in much of this planning and several expansions of the facilities.
it is an OMG fantasy land of what they have there.

TAMU-Corpus Christi has great acoustics for making honor band recordings. I don't think it would be a good model though since I assume it won't only be music on stage. Acoustically we got a really great sounding recording out of CT Johnson's hall year before this one.
Richardson has always been said to have one of the best halls - and recordings I've heard from there are always good! I've not yet had a chance to take my kids from the Corpus area up there.
Texas A&M University Kingsville also just opened a new hall that is supposed to be awesome sounding. The pandemic happened before I was able to get out there to see it.
Someday I hope to be able to build one of those...
