In our travels we have the privilege of performing in a very wide variety of venues - small, medium and large churches, major symphony halls, recital halls, college auditoriums, basketball courts...It keeps us on our toes in terms of assessing and figuring out how to sing into the acoustics ( which we do in warmup) and assures that life is never boring because it's different every night. It's always a thrill to be in a historic theater which has been saved from extinction. Such is the case with the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox in Spokane, built in l931 and saved by generous donors and the community from being turned into a parking lot - apparently they were moments ahead of the wrecking ball in saving hall. It reopened in 2007, was given an award for the restoration by the National Trust for Historical Preservation in 2010, and is one of the most beautiful restorations of anything you could ever see. The sound was very good, and very clear for words, we were told, and the audience extremely vocal in its enthusiasm from before we started to after the encore (Somebody to Love.) We had spent the day enjoying parks and gardens and wonderful restaurants in Spokane, and hope we'll be back.
