Violinist Itzhak Perlman, a New York Philharmonic board member, said he likes performing in Avery Fisher Hall, which has been criticized by patrons over the years for having poor sound. According to Perlman, tweaking a concert hall's acoustics can be risky because there's no guarantee that the sound will improve.
