Wentz Concert Hall Wentz Concert Hall is hailed as a gem-the premier destination in Chicago's western suburbs to appreciate performances of classical, jazz and contemporary music. Wentz Concert Hall can be "tuned" through the motorized extension and retraction of sound-absorbing curtains. Two massive sound chambers, one on each side of the stage and invisible to the audience, enhance the audio characteristics and allow sound to bounce off multiple planes as it is directed to the audience.
