During Cincinnati Music Hall's $135 million renovation
Music Hall is in the midst of a $135 million renovation that has replaced the strings of the symphony with the shrill whir of saws since June.
Only WCPO's cameras have been inside during construction, which is expanding the lobby to create a grander feel to the entranceways. The 100 to 150 construction workers on site any given day are also creating new dressing rooms, an orchestra library, a box office and offices for the symphony staff.
Capacity in the 3,500-seat Springer Auditorium will drop by about 1,000 to create more leg room, wider seats and light and sound locks on the doors to enhance the theater's acoustics.
