Roy Thomson Hall
Fusion of acoustics and sound
Engineering Harmonics designed a complete renovation of the performance sound and communications systems in this iconic venue, after confirming that uncontrolled reflections from specific surfaces in the hall and acoustic interference between loudspeakers in the original sound system were causing audible anomalies.
A retractable electro acoustic performance sound system is deployable on demand at Roy Thomson Hall for popular music concerts, master classes, and other performances that supplement the schedule of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, the hall’s primary tenants.
Performance sound, video and communications systems consulting, design, tender, contract administration and commissioning.
The new system has raised the bar for amplified concert sound, providing greater coverage, power and fidelity, and has been well received by both touring sound engineers and audience members alike.
We retained Engineering Harmonics because we respect them and we respect the quality of their work—both the results they had obtained on their previous projects and the process they employed in achieving those results.

We have some very traditional teachers in our program who literally could not imagine how they were going to be able to teach without a blackboard and chalk. If we hadn’t had Andrew Kozak on board we never would have been able to get our teachers to understand how they can teach better with this technology.

Within an hour they knew where my knowledge stopped and where theirs had to start — and they were very, very gracious about it, even though they play on the world stage. They brought world-class knowledge and home-town service to the project.
