In 2006, Meyer Sound installed the first ever Constellation electroacoustic architecture into Cal Performances' magnificent home, the Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley, Calif. Robert Cole, then director, championed this decision, and many extraordinary artists have since captivated audiences as the subtle enhancements of electroacoustic technology bring out the best in Cal Performances' program repertoire that ranges from jazz to chamber music, classical piano recitals to opera.

This August, Cal Performances welcomed a new director—Matías Tarnopolsky, whose impressive credits include the New York Philharmonic, Chicago and BBC Symphony Orchestras. We are very excited about Tarnopolsky's appointment and look forward to the continued growth of our home city as a vibrant heart for the appreciation of performing arts.

In December, the Zellerbach Hall and Constellation will play host to the Mark Morris Dance Group's presentation of The Hard Nut. To learn more about the show or purchase tickets, click here.
