For one weekend every July, Odeonsplatz turns into the setting for a superb series of concerts. Since the year 2000, the Bayerische Rundfunk's symphony orchestra and the Munich Philharmonic have given concerts with outstanding soloists at "Klassik am Odeonsplatz". Around 16,000 come to enjoy this musical treat. The greatest challenge: uniform sound distribution around the entire square. However, the facades and gaps in the buildings cause variations in delay and reverberation times. That's why we use an electronic room acoustics system to simulate a room over the Odeonsplatz that is similar to that of a concert hall.
