If you find yourself heading out to Cedar Rapids in Iowa for a performance you might want to stop by and check out Orchestra Iowa, Iowa's Premier Symphony Orchestra of Professional Musicians and Concerts. And with some of the best Cedar Rapids Iowa Hotels available right on the riverfront, you are within walking distance of the symphony hall!
Even though all orchestra instruments are acoustic, microphones, amps and speakers are all used to enhance certain portions of the performance and to make sure no instruments are overwhelmed by others. Therefore, orchestras often have a lot of electricity and power going into their musical halls. Make sure your hall is protected with an uninterruptible Power Manager, or Power Conditioner for all live performances.
Geologists who also play in the orchestra might find some similarities between the metals that we mine for resources and the metals used in the finer pieces of acoustic orchestra instruments. This goes to show some of the diversity seen on college campuses. Students can go from studying soil gas to the orchestra hall and then out onto the sports field.
