Peabody Opera House Audio System
St. Louis, Missouri
Peabody Opera House
When the renovated Peabody Opera House in downtown St. Louis re-opened in 2011, a historic 3,100 seat landmark roared back to life. TSI designed and installed the theater’s state-of-the-art audio system, which had to be ready to handle a wide range of events, from one-man shows, to Broadway musicals, to rock concerts, without interfering with the building’s architectural integrity. TSI engineers and technicians worked over three years during design and construction to plan the system, select the right components, and fit them to the space. The result? A star-studded opening night featuring Aretha Franklin and Jay Leno.
