Kehl Associates Invited Back for Second Performance  Acoustical Treatment Completion at St. Paul’s Palace Theatre  The recent renovation of St. Paul’s Palace Theatre was a smashing success for this 3,000-seat theatre, originally constructed in 1916 for vaudeville performances.  Due to budget constraints, however, some of the recommendations of the Acoustical Consultant for the project, Kehl Associates, could not be followed. Although the main theatre and the enormous balcony received priority attention, budget did not allow for acoustical treatment in the under-balcony areas or for the lower side-walls.  First Avenue, the operator of the venue, was so pleased with the original acoustic design provided for the main part of the theatre by Kehl Associates,  that they asked them back to design matching acoustics for the remaining areas. The project includes additional draperies for the lower side-walls as well as under- balcony acoustical ceiling treatment.   Kehl Associates and sister company, KSG Sound & Video, worked with Oertel Architects on the acoustic treatment design and methods of attaching support hardware to the fragile 100-year-old plaster walls and ceilings.  The project successfully brought the acoustics of the under-balcony areas in line with those of the main theatre and upper balcony.
